Footnotes

  • In his paper to the ECC in 1988, Vol 13, pt.2, pls.82-83, Dennis Cockell showed two closely related baskets of the same distinctive shape, one with the same central subject as the present lot and one with the same painted border. Cockell related these to shards he had found at Vauxhall Cross. The example illustrated with deer featured a powdered manganese ground. Another basket of the same shape with a manganese ground was sold by Phillips 29 November 1989, lot 234.
