Early Staffordshire Childs Pearlware Name Mug

CHRISTENING CUP for CHARLES

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 engine turned base and applied loop handle joined with leaf terminals. The mug is light weight and beautifully potted with pearlware glaze.

Fit for a very special child or future king, the mug is transfer printed in cobalt blue with an engraved decorative cartouche surrounding the name CHARLES 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 childrens education and moral training in the early to mid-19th century.

The cup is in great condition, with no chips cracks or repairs. Wear on the foot and rim commensurate with age and prior use. Typical period imperfections to the transfer printed reserve. Offered as is. A very special gift for anyone named Charles or to celebrate the birth of the new child. Add to any collection of christening gifts and early pearlware juvenalia. An uncommon name scarcely found on christening wares of this period.
