    The cartoon source for the print on the present lot was published by Fores on the 16th April 1803, just before the declaration of war on France. Several Staffordshire potters used variants of the print, usually in conjunction with the motto Success to the Volunteer as found on the present example. Reproductions of these early wares commemorating military and naval exploits were popular amongst potters in the early 20th Century. See David Drakard Printed English Pottery (London, 1992) pls. 501-504.
