Although very similar, there are slight differences between the Caughley 'Fisherman' pattern and that of the design produced at Worcester. As is seen in the present lot, the Caughley 'Fisherman' has an angular, straight fishing line, while the Worcester version has an undulating line. Additionally, in Caughley examples the Van Dyke border is fully shaded and the fisherman is tall and lean with 'a short fat fish'. For a further discussion and illustration, see Geoffrey A. Godden, Caughley & Worcester Porcelains, 1775-1800, London, 1969, p. 27 and colour pl. I.
