The same figure features on several dishes which differ only in the painted initials flanking the figure. A dish initialled ‘GR’ is identified as King George I and illustrated by F. H. Garner and Michael Archer, English Delftware, London, 1972, pl. 25, where the authors note on p. 10 that this same figure has been used to represent a number of different figures, “alternatively labelled ‘GR’ (for George I)…, ‘DM’ (for the Duke of Marlborough), ‘PG’ (for Prince George of Denmark, Anne’s consort), ‘PE’ (for Prince Eugene), and ‘DO’ (for the Duke of Ormond)." Another figure dressed in armor and initialled ‘GR2’, for George II, is illustrated with Duke of Marlborough and Duke of Ormond examples, by Anthony Ray, English Delftware Pottery, in the Robert Hall Warren Collection, London, 1968 pl. 2, nos. 4, 5 and 7. A Marlborough charger, together with a Prince George charger, was in the John Philip Kassebaum Collection, sold Sotheby's London, October 1st 1991, lots 61-62.
Michael Archer, Delftware in the Fitzwilliam Museum, London, 2013, pp. 13-14, suggests a production site of Norfolk House, London for chargers of this type on the basis of a sherd painted with an armoured figure excavated in Lambeth.
