Description:

Hard paste porcelain cream jug, decorated with a wide band of under-glaze blue with gilt hand-painted scrolling foliage and with bat printed decoration in gold, pattern 888.  On one side is a landscape with a county scene of a house and fence. On the reverse there is a stand of trees to the right and a multi-arched bridge in the left distance. 

The mark on the base is painted in red enamel. The name Warburton refers to Peter Warburton who is said to have patented the method of printing in gold in 1810 on behalf of the New Hall porcelain company, whose formal title was Hollins, Warburton & Co.

The decoration would have used 24 carat gold and must have been an expensive option. Perhaps cost was the reason that a fairly modest amount appears to have been produced
