Catalogue Note

The color palette and outlining in manganese can be compared with a dish of a similar subject illustrated by Leslie B. Grigsby, The Longridge Collection of English Slipware and Delftware, London, 2000, Vol. 2, p. 137, D102. The same dark orange, yellow and turquoise green tones feature on a jug inscribed and dated '.R.S./1692', attributed to Brislington, published by Michael Archer, Delftware in the Fitzwilliam Museum, London, 2013, pp. 173-174, C.25. Though the characteristic pale turquoise glaze of Brislington is absent in the present dish, an attribution to that site is plausible. Similar coloring was used on a posset pot and cover in the Longridge collection, illustrated by Grigsby, ibid, pp. 302-303, D276.
