A Rare Staffordshire Pearlware Jug, Pattern "Elephant & Camel", c.1825
A Rare Pearlware ovoid Jug in "Elephant & Camel" Pattern, made by Baggerley & Ball, Staffordshire c.1825, (filled-in transfer on pearlware), boldly painted with figures, an elephant and a camel, on a dark blue ground. Dimensions: 13.5cm. high. Unmarked. Condition: spout restored.
*This 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 in Staffordshire, Bristol and Swansea. Predominately jugs and mugs, they stand out with their brightly enamelled colouring on deep blue backgrounds, with transfer patterns that reflect the popular taste for Chinoiserie at that time.
