Creamware mug, transfer-printed with a view of ships in action representing the Battle of the Nile, 1798. It is inscribed 'Lord Nelson engaging the Toulon Fleet off the Mouth of the Nile', 'The young Alexander of France/May boast of his prowess in vain/When Nelson appears tis confest/That Britains are Lords of the Main'. The design is derived from an earlier engraving by Robert Sayer after Swaine showing Captain Richard Tyrell RN in 'Buckingham' engaging 'Florisssant', 'Aigrette' and 'Atalante' on 3 November 1758 (see PAF4612).The mug has a black rim and a moulded base with a hand-painted personal inscription: 'Frances ; Grace Wilkinson Lincoln 1800'.
