This very old cup is 4 3/8" wide at the rim and 2" high. It was made by an unknown Staffordshire potter, most likely in the late 18th or early 19th Century. It is unusually thinly potted from a material like Creamware. The blue transfer print is a derivative of the Aesop's Fables prints that were used by some potters, but after owning this cup for over 30 years I have never been able to find matching characteristics in another example that would have been close enough to attribute it to a maker. It is cracked in a couple of places but there is no evidence of a complete break or repair. For a collector like me, this cup is a curiosity and well worth the price. Pictures clearly show condition. Any additional information that others may have about this cup would be quite welcome.
