Catalogue Note

Miniature objects in English Delftware are rare survivals and few are recorded in the literature. The 'Chinaman in Grasses' motif would suggest a production date at the end of the 17th century. A blue and white miniature mug painted with pagodas was in the Longridge Collection, sold, Christie's South Kensington, November 3, 2011, lot 275. A small mug, 7cm high, painted in blue and manganese, attributed to Lambeth, is illustrated by Anthony Ray, English Delftware Pottery in the Robert Hall Warren Collection, London, 1968, pl. 91, no. 187.
