Notes : Although this pattern was inordinately popular and used by the Worcester manufactories for an extended period, the doyen of porcelain tea cup research, Mr Michael Berthoud, identifies the use of the 'pinched loop' handle - as in this instance - specifically to the Flight period of production, hence the date range given above; It wasThomas Flight who was in sole charge of the Warmstry House factory at the time that George III and Queen Charlotte visited; it was Her Majesty who was to inspire the name of what was to become this ubiquitous pattern.
