ANGLO-AMERICAN POTTERY.
DESIGNS IN VARIOUS COLORS.         Mostly by UNKNOWN
MA KERS.
T IS IMPOSSIBLE to sub-classify the large number of ce-
ramic prints in various colors which occur without the
names of the manufacturers. Many of the English potters
appear to have issued but one or two American views, while
others seem to have varied the marginal device with each sub-
ject treated. In fact, it is unusual to find two designs of this
class which bear the same border. Some of these views are
found only in a single color, while others occur in a variety of
tints. For the reason that all of these ceramic prints, other
than those in dark blue, were produced at about the same pe-
riod, and it is possible that the majority of them may later be
found to have been made in the full variety of colorings, it is
not considered necessary to subdivide them in this respect.
Occasionally, however, two colors are combined in a single
piece, one being used for the central print and another for the
border.
