War of 1812 Commemorative Jug Decorated for American Market, Naval Battles, Image 1

A rare and outstanding example, the engraving on a white reserve, surrounded by infrequently seen apple green ground color surmounted by luster trim. The transfer bearing the engraver's name, Bentley, Wear and Bourne in script under the engravings. This firm produced high quality work for other manufacturers; specialized in enameling and transfer prints for the American market. Their engravings illustrating Anglo-American naval engagements are particularly fine. See Old English Luster Pottery by W.D. John and Warren Baker; American Naval Engagements, PP. 59-65. Also, Anglo-American War, pp. 60-72. See page 61 for a discussion on the partnership of William Bentley, William Wear and Samuel Bourne; Bourne ceases to be a partner sometime between 1814 and 1822.
