This image shows plate L (= 50). Jones’ original description of this plate from his “Description of the plates” (page 9–15), transcribed literally, using Jones’ orthography:

“From a very beautiful painted Vase. Again we have this mixed style in a very marked manner; the composition is of the detached character, starting from many centres, yet all linked together. Some of the flowers are treated quite conventionally, whilst others have a much nearer approach to nature. The light-running ground pattern, which is indented on the vase before painting, is continuous all over the vase.”

Additional hints by Commons users:

The image shows many little scratches, traces of dust etc.; many of these artifacts are already present in the reprint, and must originate either from the original chromolithographic print, or from the offset reproduction process which was needed to produce the reprint.


This image has been scanned from some newer reprint of Jones’ book by Aristeas, because this plate was missing from the Internet Archive’s scan of the book.
