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.
