Worcester porcelain factory (English, 1751 - 2009)

These finely detailed prints of Queen Charlotte and King George III are attributed to Robert Hancock,
who adapted them from engravings by James McArdell (circa 1729–1765) after paintings by Jeremiah
Meyer (1735–1789). The lilac color is unusual, as black and red are more common enamel colors for
18th-century transfer-printing.
