The name of the naturalist and collector Hans Sloane is more widely recognised by porcelain collectors that that of William Curtis the Kew botanist and illustrator. The Botanical Magazine started in 1787 has been a primary inspiration for decorators and painters for over 200 years. William Duesbury purchased the first four years and three months of the publication in April 1791 to inspire painters within the factory. An inspired decision.
