Inscription Notes

[1] Wendy M. Watson, Italian Renaissance Maiolica from the William A. Clark Collection, exh. cat. (11 venues), London and Washington, 1986: 183. Timothy Wilson provided Watson with the information that Dr. Fischer of the Hauptstaatarchiv, Stuttgart, had identified the arms as referring to the marriage of Genoveva, third daughter of the Chancellor of Wurttemberg, Gregor Lamparter, and Nikolaus Rabenhaupt von Such, Chancellor of Lower Austria. At the time Watson wrote her catalogue, at least ten pieces were known with these arms (four in Budapest, two in Vienna, and one each in the British Museum, Museum fur Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg, and the Pringsheim Collection).
