Footnotes

  • Literature;
    Una des Fontaines (F.R.S.A.) describes this design as "one of the most extravagant of the fairy river landscape designs. In the centre of the blue river glides an ornate gondola in red; on the further bank rise minarets, temples, follies, beswagged and garlanded pillars crowned with flower baskets...and what may perhaps be described as a topiary Tower Bridge in black....Sundry figures are dotted around, some of the recogniseable from other designs, such as the 'Fairy with Large Hat still' punting away!" in her book 'Wedgwood Fairyland Lustre', Born-Hawkes/Sotheby Parke Bernet, New York/London, 1975, pages 117-119
