Eric Knowles Comments
The Worcester Porcelain factory appears to have used the 'Stag Hunt' pattern as early as 1752-3 as can be seen on a footed jug in the Rissik Marshall collection and illustrated in 'The Marshall collection of Worcester Porcelain in the Ashmolean Museum, Volume 1', Sword, Rosalind ,page 122 plate 178. Worcester is known to have produced three versions of this pattern during the 1750's
The pattern is credited to having been adopted by Meissen in 1725, whilst Chinese versions are often enhanced by bianco sopra bianco white enamelling and thought to have been introduced during the reign of the Emperor Kangxi (1661-1722). Other English porcelain factories are known to have also used this pattern including Derby, Lowestoft, Liverpool ,both John Pennington and Phillip Christian who introduced it onto his blue and white wares, Chamberlains Worcester and London decorated examples on white Chinese Porcelains.
