The signature green oak suggests the hand of Thomas Barton in the design of this piece. This piece is most likely either from his period working under Edmund Nye or soon after he took control of the business following Nye’s death in 1862.The identical image set within the cartouche has been found on other pieceswith Barton labels. One of the finest examples that we have seen
