More London Landmarks

I recently blogged about P.B & S London landmark series which includes images such as the Crystal Palace, the Houses of Parliament, Marble Arch etc. Well, here is a plate with the image of the Palace of Westminster fromt he other side of the river Thames. The foliate ornament is hand-coloured with enamels as is the geometric border.

I just found a set of six plates and a tazza today. They seem an odd set as the plates are large/dinner size. They're all different London landmarks, but I don't think there's a Crystal Palace, more's the pity.

Hi, picked up one of these plates in New Zealand, for free yesterday.

I just acquired a set of the London landmarks set from PB&S .. a large pitcher and bowl, along with the chamber pot. I have been researching the set and came across your blog. Any additional information on this set would be appreciated. It's very unusual.
