    An Early 19th Century Earthenware Tobacco Jar with ‘Bat Transfer’ Decoration, English Circa 1810


    The cylindrical body glazed inside and out, fitted with a conforming domed lid and decorated overall with hand applied ‘bat transfer’ motifs of hunt & coaching views. Condition is fair, old firing cracks and minor wear commensurate with age and use. Dimensions, 8” high x 5.5” diameter.

    The method of ‘bat-transfer’ decoration was the method of applying ink on a baton (‘bat’) over a thin perforated tissue onto a ceramic body. This practise was very time consuming and was in use for a relatively short period of time, roughly from 1800-1820.
