The armorial dish, centre in the illustration, possibly bears the arms of Jones. See D. S. Howard, Chinese Armorial Porcelain, 1974, p.365, where a date of circa 1750 is suggested. The plate with sprays of bamboo, finger citrus and iris at the border bears the arms of Newton with Alleyne in pretence. See D. S. Howard, ibid., 1974, p.296, where a date of circa 1745 is suggested. A similar plate is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, no.51.86.235, Wingfield Bequest, formerly in the McCann Collection.
