Staffordshire England c. 1880

This 2 3/4" high x 2 3/4" diameter child's pearlware mug, excluding the applied handle,
has a crisp image transfer printed in rich deep red.

In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills style decorative clover transfer, this mug has a central image of Little jack Horner sitting in his corner with a plum from his pie stuck upon his thumb.

Condition is very good. The mug is has a nibble off the rim, appears to be underglaze, original to the making. A tiny half inch spider to the outside bottom, which doesn't go through to the inside.

The image is part of the Nursery Tales series coveted by collectors. This transfer, rarely seen on the market, will be a special abc mug in your collection.

Mugs like these were given as gifts to children on special occasions and were used as educational tools, as well. A lovely addition to your ABC collection.
