This cream tureen is based on type made by several porcelain factories in Paris during the early nineteenth century. It is painted with a band of garden flowers including morning glory, pink roses and tulips. The Swansea factory was celebrated for the quality of its flower painting and this is probably the work of David Evans, who later worked at Grainger's in Worcester and in Staffordshire.
