EARLY PEARLWARE ABC MUG
BIRD ~ WREN
BROWNHILLS POTTERY ~ Staffordshire England ~ c. 1880
This fabulous 2 5/8" high x 2 3/4" tall mug excluding the applied handle is transfer printed in milk chocolate brown. It has great four color polychrome hand painting in shades of cinnamon brown, green, and cobalt blue.
In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer on one side of the mug, the mug has a WREN perched singing his summer song. Wonderful wildflowers and foliage surround his woodland home. A diagonal aesthetic design separates the two images.
Appears to have never been used. The mug is in good condition. The handle has been securely reapplied.
