This 3 " high x 3 " wide, excluding the applied handle, childrens mug is transfer printed in red with underglaze hand painting in shades of green, red and orange yellow.
This finely potted very lightweight child's mug has a transfer print of the letter " T " in upper case. A Tinker sits upon his bench with tools in hand mending a pot between his legs. An attentive young boy, possibly his apprentice watches the Tinker at his task.
T WAS A TINKER AND MENDED A POT
