Pearlware Creamware Child's Mug ~ Improvement at School 1820

EARLY CHILDS TRANSFERWARE MUG

For Improvement at School

Staffordshire England ~ c. 1820

This is a wonderful child's transferware mug, circa 1820. This piece stands 2 1/2” tall x 2 1/2” wide with an applied loop handle, acanthus terminals. Blue painted base and rim. The mug is light weight and beautifully potted with a pearlware glaze. The piece is transfer printed in black.

The piece is unmarked. It most certainly was made in the Staffordshire district. Mugs like this were made as gifts for good children and rewards of merit, used to aid in children's education and moral training, and to encourage their imaginations in the early to mid-19th century.

The condition of this exceptional mug is great, museum quality.
