Catalogue Note

Miniature 'toy' wares such as this were probably inspired by Dutch miniature silver forms which were exported to England in the 18th century. The same forms probably influenced toy wares produced at the Worcester porcelain factory. A cauldron painted in colors is illustrated by Leslie B. Grigsby, The Longridge Collection of English Slipware and Delftware, London, 2000, Vol. 2, p. 229, D205. A further blue and white example in a different flower design. is illustrated by Frank Britton, English Delftware in the Bristol Collection, London, 1982, p. 72, 4.12. A third polychrome cauldron pot was sold at Bonhams, London, December 8, 2004, lot 188.
