Plate

Wedgwood (, 1759 - present)

This plate was decorated by Guy Green of Liverpool for Wedgwood with a print called “The Pretty
Mantua Maker.” It derives from an engraving by Charles Grignion (1716–1810), after Michel-Vincent
Brandoin (1733–1807). A mantua is a type of robe or outer garment for women.
