EARLY CHILDS TRANSFERWARE MUG

NAMED MUG ~ JOHN

Staffordshire England ~ c. 1830

This is a whimsical little child's christening transferware mug, circa 1830. This mug stands 2 1/2 " tall x 2 5/8 " wide with an applied acanthus leaf type loop handle. The mug is light weight and beautifully potted with a pearlware glaze.

The mug is transfer printed in black with a spectacular scrolling of flowers and vines and the name JOHN along the front.

The piece is unmarked. It most certainly was made in England. Mugs like this were made as gifts for good children and rewards of merit, used to aid in children's education and moral training, and to encourage their imaginations in the early to mid-19th century.

The condition of this exceptional mug is Excellent.
