Staffordshire Mug ~ ABC ROBIN ~ 1880
EARLY CHILDS ALPHABET ABC MUG
RED BREASTED ROBIN
BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO
This fabulous 2 3/4" high x 2 3/4" tall mug excluding the applied handle is transfer printed in very dark bittersweet brown. It has great four color polychrome hand painting in shades of cinnamon brown, cherry red, green, and cobalt blue. The clearest transfer we have seen on this type mug.
In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills decorative transfer on one side of the mug, the mug has a spring Robin sitting on a branch above the garden floor. A diagonal aesthetic design separates the two images.
Condition is excellent, never used.
