"Manners Makyth Man" was the motto of William of Wykeham, Bishop of Winchester, who founded New College, Oxford and Winchester College, and both of those institutions use his arms and motto. Curiously the arms in the centre of the plate that carries the motto are surmounted by a bishop's mitre, but the arms shown are not those of William of Wykeham.

The pattern name is unusual. The only reference I can find to anywhere or anyone of that name is the Franco-Russian pianist Marie Panthès, but she did not become sufficiently famous until c.1897, which appears to be too late for the pattern as there is no "Ltd." after "G.L.A.& Bros." (starts 1884), or "ENGLAND" in the mark (starts 1891). We cannot, however, be certain how well the factory kept their marks up to date. I would be grateful to learn of another possible reference.

The centrepiece is 300mm wide across handles, and 140mm high. Earthenware.

The former owner assures me they were in a sale together as tureen and stand, but the oval 'stand' is a meat dish.
