Caughley Fisherman and Cormorant Pattern

Caughley 'Fisherman and Cormorant' shell dish c1780

Originally known as the 'Pleasure Boat' pattern, this early print features an oriental scene of a fisherman in his boat having caught a fish, whilst a hungry cormorant sits on a rock. Here we have a rare scallop shaped pickle or sweetmeat dish. For more details see Premier Antiques
