A similar example is in the Glaisher Collection No 540 Ref: The Catalogue of the Glaisher Collection of Pottery & Porcelain in the Fitzwilliam Museum CambridgeThis example has lost part of the acanthus leaf in the firing (and the break covered in glaze), part of the other has been removed to match. A similar example in the V&A has the exact same flaw!
