Catalogue Note

The pose of Adam and Eve protecting their modesty with leaves sees a departure from earlier dishes which use The Temptation image of Crispin van de Passe. Michael Archer illustrates three dishes of this type attributed to the Limekiln Lane works of Josiah Bundy or James Gaynard, or Brislington, in Delftware, The Tin-glazed Earthenware of the British Isles, London, 1997, pp. 84-85, A18-A20, of which A19 is particularly close. The author notes that sherds showing Eve's head and Adam's hand, now in the Bristol Museum, were found on Brandon Hill and almost certainly came from the Limekiln Lane pottery.
