The Blind Earl pattern, with its raised molding, was introduced by Worcester in the 1750s. It was named after the Earl of Coventry, who lost his sight in a hunting accident, asking Worcester to make for him a design that he could feel - the accident purportedly dating not until c1770-80. However research shows that two generations of
the family suffered a loss of vision. A similar shape was also made at Chelsea during the Red Anchor period (1752-56).
