English brown stoneware coffee can with applied neo-classical decoration, circa 1840. Mug has an applied cartouche mark with the number 169 (ref. Relief-Moulded Jugs 1820-1900, by R.K.Henrywood, plate19, pg. 40 ). Mug measures 2 5/8 inches high, 3 5/8 inches across the handle, and 2 5/8 inch diameter. Small firing flaw on body and a small firing crack near base of handle. Cracks on cartouche are also firing flaws that do not affect the mugs integrity. It is a wonderful and interesting bit of stoneware.
