Scope note
Process of decorating ceramics by transferring the design from prints on another material, often using heat; invented in England in the 1750s. Designs are first engraved and then printed on paper or another material using a special ceramic ink. The paper is then pressed against the surface of the ceramic, enamel, or glass and the design is thus transferred, often with the application of heat. The process is also used for enamels and glass.
