This chinoiserie decoration is traditionally referred to as the 'Niglette' style. The attribution stems from a dated dish of 1733 with the initials N/J·E which is painted in a bright palette with eleven figures of ladies and dancing children. The dish exhibited in August 1851 and published in 1920 by W.J. Pountney, Old Bristol Potteries, by studying the Parish records of The Church of St. Mary, Redcliff, Bristol, the author suggested the initials related to John and Hester Niglette who were married 1721. Whilst the evidence supporting this claim is inconclusive, Niglette has given his name to a this school of painting.
