Robert Hancock has been called 'the most famous of all ceramic engravers'. He had worked at the Worcester porcelain manufactory for twenty years before disagreements with his business partners led him to move to Caughley in 1775. Hancock worked at Caughley until 1779-1780. Several Caughley designs associated with Hancock were very similar to Worcester designs, such as the Parrot and Fruit pattern shown here on a bell-shaped mug dating from 1775-1780.
