  • Artist/Maker: Sir Godfrey Kneller
  • Bristol, England
  • 1714-1727
  • Tin-glazed earthenware (delft)
  • 1957-125

The drawing on this plate is slightly more accomplished than many of the royal delft portraits of the eighteenth century. Its design source appears to be a 1714 painting by Sir Godfrey Kneller from which many engravings and other paintings were derived. The Bristol attribution is based on the shape of the plate.
