RARE COLOR EARLY CHILDS TRANSFERWARE MUG
SIGN LANGUAGE ~ ALPHABET ~ ABC
Staffordshire England ~ c. 1830

This child's transferware mug, circa 1830, is extremely rare. It stands 2 1/2 " tall and 2 5/8 " wide excluding the applied loop handle. The mug has a turned base, is light weight and beautifully potted with a heavy pearlware glaze.

It is transfer decorated in purple, with 24 blocks, like a checkboard, each containing a letter of the alphabet and corresponding sign from finger-spelling or sign language for the deaf. The upper right-hand corner depicts an entire hand, representing the five vowels.
The condition of this mug is great.
