St. Augustine Ware ~ England ~ c.1900

This is a rare colorful hand painted transferware mug from the genre of rabbit ware plates that have become very popular.

Measuring 4 1/4 inches tall x 5 inches wide. The mug is decorated with rich chocolate brown transfer print which was then hand painted in a brilliant green, yellow, brick red and brown, depicting two rabbits and a maiden in the English countryside.
