|Appraiser Comments:||In 1751 Dr John Wall tried to revive industry in Worcester by founding a Porcelain works. It became the Royal Worcester Porcelain Works in 1778. The policy of Dr Wall for artistic and technological innovation continues to the present day and has led to the production of a fine porcelain. These newer products have been met by an increasing demand, resulting in a new, modern factory on the banks of the River Severn to satisfy the needs of customers today. Linder designed many animal items for Royal Worcester, bird sculptures, Plates and especially horse related items. On this particular piece you have a winner. The Canadian Mounted police piece is very scarce and can be found next to nowhere on the secondary market making it very desirable, more so then some of the other Linder pieces out there.|
