    A related example attributed to Brislington is discussed by Michael Archer, Delftware (1997), p.91, fig.A33 and col. pl.19. Archer identifies similarities in decoration that form part of a small group separate from the main tradition of flower chargers. All can be seen in the decoration of this dish, including the inclusion of a vase, often striped with foliate handles, the fan-like arrangement of leaves, the blobs of colour at the tips of the leaves and the large flowerheads. These characteristics occur on fragments from Brislington. For further examples see Bernard Rackham, Catalogue of the Glaisher Collection (1987) pl.105, figs.1486 and 1488 and Frank Britton, English Delftware in the Bristol Collection (1982), p.57, fig.3.21. Another very similar charger was sold by Bonhams on 10 September 2008, lot 159.
