- Curator's comments
- For coffee pot with same pattern see Bonhams Catalogue 'The Susi and Ian Sutherland Collection of Blue and White Porcelain,' 3rd October 2007, Lot 226, p85.
The Mansfield pattern was also used at the Worcester factory. A close connection between the decorative styles of the Plymouth and Worcester factories has been presumed as a result of an advert in the Worcester Journal, March 22nd 1770:
"China ware painters wanted for the Plymouth New Invented Porcelain Manufactory.'
