The coat of arms that appears both inside the bowl and inside the finial of the cover has been identified as that of the Craggs family. This bowl might have belonged either to James Craggs the Elder (1657–1721) or to his son, James Craggs the Younger (1686–1721) who was principal Secretary of State to George I.
Marking: Chinese character (in underglaze blue, on underside of bowl)
