A bell-shaped mug of soft-paste porcelain with overglaze bat-printed design in black. The mug has three printed designs; the primary image, known as King of Prussia No. 2 is a half-length portrait of Frederick, King of Prussia in armor. The design, titled “KING of PRUSSIA” and dated “1757”, derives from a full length portrait by Antoine Pesne, engraved by Richard Houston (see below). Also see the additional designs printed on the mug below.
