Eric Knowles Comments

For a comparison of these and other 'Paris' moulded table wares See: Swansea Porcelain Shapes and Decoration Jones AE (Jimmy) and Joseph Sir Leslie pages 53,54 and 55.

 

I have always considered these Swansea Paris fluted teawares to represent the highest sophistication achieved by any Regency period maker both English or French.
