EARLY CHILDS ALPHABET ABC MUG

NURSERY TALES ~ LITTLE MISS MUFFET

BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO ~
Staffordshire England c. 1880

This 2 3/4" high x 2 3/4" diameter child's mug, excluding the applied handle,
has a crisp image transfer printed in rich chocolate brown with great four color polychrome hand painting, clobbering in shades of red, golden yellow, green and cobalt blue. 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.

In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills decorative clover transfer, this mug has a central cartouche of Little Miss Muffet sitting on her tuffit eating her curds and whey. Along came a spider...such a delicious nursery tale.

Condition is very good. The mug is clean and bright with almost no wear. A tiny bit of rim wear from little children's lips.

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.
