Reference: The Dictionary of Worcester Porcelain, Volume I, 1751-1851, John Sandon, Page 272 for discussion of the Quail pattern and a mention of the occasional use of a gold crescent on these wares leading to a factory attribution rather than Giles. See Page 86 for a butter tub with this design and also a gold crescent.  Page 318 shows the form where the author uses the term stirrup cup and stirrup beaker.


See The Gardiner Museum, Toronto, Canada, Object G04.18.31.1-2 for identical beakers, The Macdonald Collection.
