Antique 18th Century Small Staffordshire Creamware Coffee Can Mug Circa 1790
This wonderful, decorative creamware coffee can was produced in Staffordshire, England in the late 18th century circa 1790. The coffee can is a delight to handle as it is so thinly potted and features a handsome tall strap handle and a lovely pearlware glaze. If you have not handled such an item before we think that you will be amazed at the feather weight lightness of its body. The exterior has been beautifully hand decorated in a polychrome enamels, we see a floral pattern featuring red and pink roses with a blue semi-circular border. See last image for scale when displayed upon an antique 19th century miniature child's/ large doll's dresser.
Measuring: Diameter with handle 3 3/8” (8.5 cm). Diameter 2 2/8” (5.5 cm). Height 2 7/8” (7 cm).
This item is in good condition for its vast age; however it does have some damage. There is some surface wear to some of the enameled flowers. There is a thin 1.5” (3.75 cm) vertical crack to the rim and a small shallow surface chip to the interior rim.
This is a wonderfully tactile object that has been produced to an excellent quality. It is thinly potted and incredibly light, the perfect addition to any 18th century pottery and porcelain collection. Please stop a while and view our other George III items of pottery and porcelain.
