This was one of the most popular patterns of the day. It is unclear whether Caughley or Worcester
introduced the pattern. While it is now called “Fisherman & Cormorant” by Worcester, and “Fisherman”
at Caughley, in its day it was simply known as “Pleasure Boat”.
Also made by some of the Liverpool manufactories, the pattern was out of fashion by 1790.
