This is a rare example of Caughley porcelain bearing overglaze printing.  The print, in orange/red enamel, depicts a two masted sailing vessel.  This mug was a special commission and is inscribed Edwd. Turner 1795 in black enamel. There is a tradition that the mug was made for the brother of Thomas Turner, the proprietor of the factory, who was an Indian Army surgeon.

There is also painted decoration of back to back roses and small floral sprays, and the rim and thumb rest are picked out with a blue enamel line.

This mug was displayed in the 2005 Caughley in Colour exhibition and is No 223 in the catalog.
