* Many pieces of imported Chinese porcelain were upgraded by overpainting (Clobbering) in England, probably in Staffordshire (some pieces were overpainted in London in the 1760’s but that is a different category)
It is likely that the same factories of decorators were also painting English pieces in the same pallette & style.
