19th C Child's Miniature Yellow Glaze Mug w/ Silver Resist Bird Decoration

A 19th Century (c. 1830 or so) Child's miniature Yellow Glaze Mug, decorated with silver resist, stenciled bird on a branch. The little mug is 1 ¾" high and 1 ¾" in diameter. The yellow bird is in the center of a circle of silver resist and there is a silver band around the top edge. No maker's mark. Considering how many times this little mug has probably hit the floor in its lifetime, it is in remarkably good condition: there are 3 edge chips around the top edge (none that extends beyond the 1/8" silver band), some very slight nibbling on the foot rim and 2 short and extremely faint ½" hairlines that are visible (barely) only on the inside of the mug. A wonderful and very colorful survivor of 19th Century English pottery.
