|"Elephant" child's mug ca. 1840|
|"Elephant And Keeper" child's plate, ca. 1840|
|Alphabet child's mug ca. 1840|
|Filled-in transferware jug with elephant, ca. 1820|
|"Elephant" child's plate ca. 1840|
|Elephants on a tiny plate (2.5 in.) advertising "Mangoena"/I am not sure what kind of drink this is. It does appear to be alcoholic!|
