Cormorant in the white. The bird stands with wings outstretched and looking to the left on a rocky base with molluscs, fish, shells and an eel. Dense white with clear glaze. Green translucency. Underside glazed. H.3.4 in (8.4 cm).

Provenance: with E. & H. Manners, London, 2005. Condition: Excellent.

Another, as Collection model, with remains of a fish in beak, and with pair in opposed direction; both in the white, Statham Collection, Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, Accession #C.22A/B-1992. A probably slightly later pair, enamelled in an early palette, the Lady Ludlow Collection, Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle, 8.9 cm and 9.3 cm, Museum #: 2004.19.1 & 2/Cer, as 1752-56, and ‘possibly modelled by M. Tebo’.

This would have to be one of the earliest bird models in English porcelain.
