DAVENPORT.    VIEW IN GENEVA.


from Gerard Ledger


The toilet box lid shows a view described in Volume 2 of the Dictionary p. 205 as “a typical romantic pattern with buildings in the foreground and distant scenery”. It had been noted on toilet wares marked with the title in a scroll cartouche. Such is also the case here where the base to this lid has a printed Davenport cartouche mark which includes the pattern name.
