Catalogue Note

The finely painted figure representing the King was also used on later chargers to show his son and successor George II (r. 1727-1760) making it difficult to a determine which King is represented when a dish is uninscribed. A dish without inscription and a second inscribed 'G II R' are illustrated by Leslie B. Grigsby, The Longridge Collection of English Slipware and Delftware, London, 2000, Vol. 2, pp. 80-81, D49-D50, where the author attributes them to Bristol, Josiah Bundy or James Gaynard of Limekiln Lane, or Brislington. These were sold, Christie's, London, May 25, 2011, lot 139 and June 10, 2010, lot 1025. A near identical charger to the present lot was sold at Christie's, New York, January 23, 2009, lot 137.
