Catalogue Note

A particularly close example, perhaps the present piece, was in the collection of the Minton artist Louis M. Solon, sold, his sale, Messrs. Charles Butters & Sons, November 26-28, 1912, lot 349.

Three similar but smaller examples are in museum collections, one from the Lady Charlotte Schreiber Collection is in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, acc. no. 414:943-1885; the second from the Dr. Glaisher Collection is in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, acc. no. C.589-1928; and the third is in the Museum of London. Chas. F. C. Luxmoore illustrates an example, perhaps the Glaisher example, in English Saltglaze Earthenware, London, 1924, pl. 43. A version of the scene also appears on a two handed loving cup, sold, Sotheby's London, July 15, 1974, lot 152. The scene also appears as sprigged decoration on brown stoneware, an example of which dated 1775, is in the British Museum, London, mus. no. 1887,0308.4.
