References: These prints are documentary evidence of Robert Hancock's move to Worcester, from Bow. He was a freelance engraver, probably learning the trade at the pioneering Battersea enamel works, then experimenting with the technique at Bow, and perfecting it at Worcester. 1757 is the accepted date for the move to Worcester, and the King of Prussia mugs are of the same date or in the following years.
