Description:

A cylindrical shaped mug printed in blue with blue ground filled-in and enameling overglaze. While similar to the Elephant and Camel pattern produced by Baggerley & Ball, it varies in details and quality. The rider on the elephant is much more predominant in this pattern. "No. 18" in the mark refers to the pattern number. See below for a panoramic view of the design.

Of this type of printed and painted wares, Pete Christmas observes that "a distinct type of English filled-in transfer on pearlware appeared for a brief period in the 1820s, during the reign of George IV, made by some 17 small factories. Predominately jugs and mugs, they stand out with their brightly enameled coloring on deep blue backgrounds, with transfer patterns that reflect the popular taste for Chinoiserie at the time. For more information on this type of filled in transferware, see Pete Christmas, "'Opaque China' 1820s Pearlware Blue Ground Filled-in Transfers", NCS Newsletter No. 153, March 2009, pp. 16-28. Mr. Christmas' research was partly funded by a TCC Richards Foundation Research Grant.
