Early Childs Verse Mug

Delights of Home ~ INNOCENCE

Staffordshire England c. 1840

The early transfer printed child's mug stands 2 7/8 inches tall and measures 2 5/8 inches across the top rim. The mug is printed in black against an earthenware blank, with an applied handle and turned base, and is finished with a greenish ponded glaze.
The mug is decorated with the romantic image of a boy and girl courting under a tree, with a country manor across the field. The images surround a verse which reads:

DELIGHTS OF HOME ~ INNOCENCE ~~ In every grove the linnets sing. To welcome the return of spring. The smiling fields once more look green. In ev'ry hedge a flower is seen.

The mug is in great condition with no chips, cracks, hairlines or repairs. Stilt marks on the foot and other minor manufacturing imperfections typical of the period. A lovely throwback to an earlier time in English country life.
