The gilded design on the rim is seen on both Chelsea and Worcester porcelain attributed to the Giles atelier. The vine leaves are also typical of Giles as are the sworls within each grape. The scattered flowers and insects are also frequently observed on Giles porcelain. Not every Mickey Mouse was drawn by Walt Disney, but on balance this is probably Giles.
