Notes for Joseph BODDINGTON

He is reputed to have painted a vase for the Prince Regent (later George IV) when he visited the factory, and this was later presented to the British Museum. However, the British Museum have no record of this vase. For further details of his work at Wedgwood see notes for his son Joseph.
