Catalogue Note

The Chinoiserie garden scenes on the exterior can be compared to those on a large Brislington punchbowl dated 1681 with the arms of the Cooper's company, illustrated by Michael Archer, Delftware, Tin-glazed Earthenware of the British Isles, London, 1997,  pp. 285-286, F.3, attributed to Brislington on the grounds of the strong turquoise glaze, and excavated fragments. Two further bowls of comparison are illustrated by Michael Archer, Delftware in the Fitzwilliam Museum, London, 2013, pp. 235-236, F.7, which features similar figures outlined or 'trekked' in dark manganese, and F.8, a Chinoiserie punchbowl dated 1683.
