Early Staffordshire Child's Pearlware Name Mug

CHRISTENING CUP for CHARLOTTE

Staffordshire England c 1830

This is an early child's transferware mug, circa 1830. This diminutive piece stands 2-3/8 inches tall x 2-5/8 inches wide with an applied loop handle. The mug is light weight and beautifully potted with pearlware glaze.

Fit for a princess, the mug is transfer printed in country blue with floral band scrolling surrounding the name CHARLOTTE in block letters in the center of the cup.

The cup is unmarked. It most certainly was made in the Staffordshire district. Mugs like this were made 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 excellent, with no chips cracks or repairs. Wear on the foot and rim commensurate with age and prior use. Nicely potted and the transfers applied with attention to detail. Offered as is and as shown. A very special gift for anyone named Charlotte or to celebrate the birth of the new princess. Add to any collection of christening gifts and early pearlware juvenalia. An uncommon name rarely found on christening wares of this period.
