This early 19th Century Sunderland Splash Lustre Frog Mug has a plain cylindrical shape and a reeded strap handle. The pearlware mug is transfer decorated with a detailed Mariner's compass, and the sterns of two sailing ships. Inside the mug is a naturalistic frog crawling up the side.
It is 4.75" high, with a base diameter of 3.5". The condition is very good. There are no cracks and no repairs or discoloration. The handle is tight and undamaged. There are lots of chips along the foot rim on both the outside and under the base. The mug displays well, and rings when tapped.
Note: There is a brownish straight mark on the interior near the lip. It is under the glaze and was done "in the making".
