I didn't find anything from the early 19th century, but I did discover a jug in the Transferware Collectors Club Pattern and Source Print Database with a lovely Aesthetic transferware pattern made by Burgess & Leigh (1851-1999) named "Flamingo." It features two flamingos in a natural bamboo setting (I am not sure that bamboo and flamingos go together). Aesthetic patterns are all about nature. This one was made around 1888.
Flamingos are very popular at zoos. I love the flamingo enclosure at the San Francisco Zoo (one of my favorite zoos). Below are two of my grandsons, Alex and Ben, enjoying the flamingos. My granddaughter loves them too, but she loves anything pink!
For your own amusement, you might want to take a look at a link to the Smithsonian's history of the plastic pink flamingo. http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/The-Tacky-History-of-the-Pink-Flamingo-165593536.html
