A superb and rare pair of Derby porcelain plates from the Haford service painted with views of the parkland from the Haford Estate. There has been long controversy as to the artist who painted the views of this service. At some stage replacements were made and are now on display in the city of Derby Museum and Art Gallery, these were painted by a different hand. Zachariah Boreman is considered by many to be the first artist to have decorated the first service and John Brewer decorating the replacements.

On the other hand it is also noted that James Banford could be a possible contender as it was he who complained to Duesbury about his eyestrain when devoting microscopic attention to the small figures in his landscapes. Banford's work is still to be positively identified; he freelanced as a decorator before coming to Derby about 1789.
