Hi,
A link to Downey's vase.

(Please note image is copyright, and used in accordance with CGR's copyright permissions.)
It does seem that this vase includes all three motifs.
Regards,
Marcus

Marcus - something just rang a bell in my head. I checked back over the notes I made with Douglas Jenkins. John Jenkins & Sons worked with Sowerby up to 1939 - so there is a bridging link of some sort, perhaps.

Sue - thank you, that's really kind of you.

Moderator - many thanks for splitting the Swans thread.

... Sadly Cottle's discoveries are still largely ignored. ...

Glen — You know I have great respect for you and your material, and would not change any of it.   You and most GMB members know this, and also know that generalisations like the above do not apply to you.   I think everyone would find it rather tiresome if I littered my sentences with caveats like "except, of course, for Glen and her published works".    They'd suspect some ulterior motive.

I didn't mean it like that Bernard - I was just (clumsily) trying to say that I am a Cottle fan too. The written word can be so ambiguous - sorry  :-*
