Catalogue Note

Jones and Son of Hanley had a short production life lasting only two years, though it is possible the firm continued as Elijah Jones of Hanley. The British History series included depictions of the Signing of the Magna Carta, Cromwell dismissing the Long Parliament and the Battle of Waterloo. See P. D. Gordon Pugh, Naval Ceramics, London, 1971, pl. 45A for a fruit dish printed with this scene.
