Worcester Porcelain 1751-1790: The Zorensky Collection, Simon Spero & John Sandon, Page 182, #192 for a sauce tureen and stand in this pattern also with gilt crescent. The authors write ...It is an exciting pattern which must have given great pride to the Worcester factory, for the gold crescent mark was used on virtually every piece, presumably in order that their efforts would not be mistaken for real Chinese porcelain.
