I suppose there were man caves (or their equal) in the 18th century, and this would have looked great in one of them. It actually seems to be too large for drinking out of (it doesn’t have a handle, for one thing), but it would be the perfect thing to sit on the shelf and remind a person that a snootfull of ale would being comfort to the heart. This example is nine and a half inches tall and has a few spots of color touchup to the glaze, but no chips. There is allover crazing and visible hairlines, especially on the bottom.
