Description:

This small bell-shaped mug is of the so-called Baddeley-Littler group of porcelain.  It is decorated with a blue enamel dentil rim and a black enamel print of a lady and a small girl walking hand in hand with a boy standing nearby.  A similar print is recorded on creamware.

This mug was in the Bernard Watney collection, who identified the source of the print as a group of figures present in the left foreground of a print of Wakefield Lodge after Paul Sandby.  The engraving by Rooker  was published in the Copper Plate Magazine, 1775.
