A pearlware ovoid form moulded jug with a blue transfer print and silver lustre decoration on the rim, top of handle and in parts of the print (swords and spear heads). The print has been over-glazed with red, yellow, green, brown and black enamels.

The print design is the ‘Cossack Mode of Attack’ which commemorates Napoleon’s failed campaign in Russia in 1812.

There is a rudimentary moulded foot. The base is shallow recessed and the clear lead glaze shows a blue colour typical of pearlware where it pools under the base.

The handle is a simple square ‘7’ type with plain spur type upper and lower terminals. The spout is plain.

Although rather clumsily decorated (so that the print is partially obscured) and naïve in effect, this is an interesting and rare jug.

Made in Staffordshire circa 1812-1815.
