Catalogue Note

A cup of this form and decoration type was excavated in Newgate and is now in the Museum of London. That example is additionally painted with a Turk's head to the interior and is illustrated by Frank Britton, London Delftware, London, 1986, p. 134, no. 94 who suggests Southwark as a probable production site and its likely use in a coffee house. A further cup also in the Museum of London, painted with flowers and raised on a flaring foot, is illustrated by Amanda Dunsmore (ed.) This Blessed Plot, This Earth, English Pottery Studies in Honour of Jonathan Horne, London, 2011, p. 186, fig. 4.
