Longton Hall produced dishes with moulded rims from 1750. This style was soon adopted by Bow and Derby and more elaborate mouldings were also used by Spode and Coalport in the early 19th century. The great monsonia engraved by Curtis appears in theBotanical Magazine, a source of inspiration for many decorators such as Brewer, Pardoe and others at Derby and beyond.
Pardoe did decorate at both Swansea and later at Bristol. We do not believe this to be his work but it is contemporary.
