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. -Miscellaneous Designs in Black, Brown, Red, Pink, Rose, medium Blue, pale Blue, Green, Purple, Lilac or Violet, Mulberry, Gray, etc. Various Borders.- 268.
