  • Seven plaques mounted in the table F314 in the nineteenth century. Plaque A is decorated with a narrow band of overglaze-blue ground overlaid with a silded band of foliage, and edged with gilded scrolls. Painted in coloured reserves with single cherubs, interspersed with three baskets of flowers and siz wreaths of foliage. The decoration of B - G is similar but they are without the cherubs.
