*Literature: The border pattern on the rim edge of the Vase is similar "to a plate on a c1780 service ordered by Thomas FitzHugh who became a director of the Honourable East India Company in 1786. ..The fashion for this simple border ws soon supplanted in the trade by a complex version of an earlier butterfly and diaper pattern. Although three separate border patterns are commonly called "Fitzhugh" the term probably applies most accurately to the plate shown on page 241, plate 243 of "*Nineteenth Century Porcelain, by Thomas Litzenburg, Jr. in collaboration with Ann T. Bailey."
