In 1770, Parker & Wakelin made stands for a pair of soup tureens of this model by John Luff, 1743 for Sir Gilbert Heathcote, 3rd Bt. (see Helen Clifford, Silver in London: The Parker & Wakelin Partnership 1760-1776, 2004, fig. 129, pp. 162-63). Since this example is of the same date, it is likely that Parker & Wakelin used the Luff tureen as the model, and it may even have been supplied to the owner of the Luff tureens.
