EARLY PEARLWARE CHILDS MINIATURE MUG ~ PRESENT FOR WRITING WELL ~ STAFFORDSHIRE ENGLAND c 1800

This desirable mug from the Staffordshire region of England stands 2-3/4 inches tall and measures 2-5/8 inches across the top rim, excluding the applied handle which is joined with leaf terminals.

The wonderful creamy earthenware mug has a deep pink lustre band along the rim and transfer print or bat print in iron red. The central reserve contains the motto PRESENT FOR WRITING WELL, encircled with scenic image depicting a countryside village and homestead from the shade of tree. Writing provides a peaceful escape and enjoyment of the simple pleasures of life and was highly valued skill from education.

Early and very small creamware and earthenware mugs were made as gifts for good children and rewards of merit, this one probably given as a reward for writing well. These small cups are quite scarce especially with such a universal subject as this.

The cup is in great condition with no chips cracks or repairs. Wear to the top edge and foot consistent with age and prior use. Haphazardly made, which makes it all the more appealing…a messy painted luster rim, transfer skips, bumps and dips in the pottery, ponding of pearlware glaze, stray dots of underglaze paint. A rare find and great example of early creamware.
