VERY EARLY SLIP DECORATED CHILDS MUG
A PRESENT FOR MY GIRL
Staffordshire England ~ c. 1820
This desirable mug from the Staffordshire region of England stands a mere 2 3/8 " tall x 2 1/4 " wide excluding the applied handle.
A wonderful pearlware mug with brown slip, similar to mochaware, covering the piece and a band of blue slip near the rim. A darker brown band graces the top of the mug with dark brown decoration along the handle.
A transfer from an old copperplate of a Goat and the inscription : A PRESENT FOR MY GIRL, completes this exceptional piece.
A rare find. Light weight and beautifully potted with no chips, cracks, hairline or repairs. Light glaze loss along the rim. You won't find a better example.
