I am still looking for the source print of the man riding an ostrich. So far I have only found a child's plate with the same pattern!

The sauce tureen undertray features a kangaroo in the border. It is from Bewick. I need to research the other animals. A job for another day.

* If The Lion and The Lioness source print looks familiar, it appears in my blog post titled Lions. Benjamin Adams copied the print for their Lions pattern, ca. 1820.
