NOTES BY CLEO M. AND G. RYLAND SCOTT, JR IN THE LATE 1950’S
See Honey plate 68E for a sauce boat exactly like our pair. It is from the Victoria and Albert Museum. See also Honey p. 154- 155. This factory (Lund’s) was the forerunner of the famous English Worcester-factory. The translucency is very green and it is made of soap stone as was the Worcester of the famous Dr. Wall period.
