C. 1890-1900 English Gaudy Welsh Mug 'Oyster' Pattern
A very useful and decorative large mug in the Gaudy Welsh Oyster pattern. This coffee/tea mug ‘can’ measures 4 inches high and is 4 inches in diameter. This mug has the beautiful cobalt blues and a pearl ware glaze. The final lusterware pinks and gold colors were added after the final kiln firing and has some rubbed areas because of use. Around the top and base rim are a few flea nibbles.
There are no chip or cracks or repairs to this large mug and looks wonderful on display and could be used.
