We have this pattern in our Database of Patterns and Sources, it is on a plate, size unknown, pattern name is "Rajah". Maker is identified as James Jamieson & Co, 1826-1859, Bo'ness, Scotland. The Rajah pattern depicts an exotic procession of elephants with a warrior leading on horseback. The chariot pulled by the second elephant is very ornate. Connell2007 says on p. 81 that the pattern was inspired by the Indian Continent. The Verreville Pottery under Robert Cochran designed a very similar pattern called Mogul that was produced in the 1850s and 1860s. Both potteries are thought to have based the patterns on the 1858 Indian Mutiny when the Mogul Empire came to an end. Kelly1999 illustrates the Rajah pattern on p. 27 in fig. 6.14. The border pattern consists of 4 repeats of a scene with an elephant interspersed with a floral pattern. The image is from Jardine2007.
