Child's 3-Color Transferware

Alphabet ABC Mug

U & V

Staffordshire England c.1850

This children's early transferware ABC mug stands 2 1/“2 tall x 2 5/8” wide with an applied loop handle. Transfer printed in red and hand colored in shades of yellow and blue, with pearlware glaze. The piece is unmarked. It most certainly was made in the Staffordshire district.

The antique mug is in great condition, with a very tiny flake off the outer rim.

Mugs and plates like these were made in the early to mid-19th century to be used as an aid in the education and moral training of young children, and were given as rewards of merit and gifts to good children. The images on this mug are based on source prints from a child's primer book.
