Early Staffordshire Child's Adams Rose Name Mug

CHRISTENING CUP for LUKE RHODES

Staffordshire England c. 1850

This is gorgeous child's named christening cup dated December 5, 1850. This diminutive piece stands 3 3/8 " tall and 3 1/2 " across the top rim, with a cinched waist, applied loop handle and turned shaped base. The mug is light weight and beautifully potted with engine turned foot and pearlware glaze.

The mug is hand painted with a four color Adams Rose motif with red, blue green and black, red outline and embellishment, and hand written inscription to LUKE RHODES born Dec 5th 1850. The cup is unsigned. It most certainly was made in the Staffordshire district of England. Mugs like this were made to celebrate a childs birth or as christening presents or gifts for good children and rewards of merit, used to aid in children's education and moral training in the early to mid-19th century.

The condition of this mug is great, with no chips cracks or repairs; details as shown in the photos. Glaze pops, minor glaze ponding and other insignificant firing imperfections. Nicely potted and the transfers applied with attention to detail.

A very special gift for fellow named Luke or to add to any collection of christening gifts and early pearlware juvenilia or christening wares.
