This is one of our favorite recent acquisitions. This charming little Victorian Nurseryware child’s mug was produced in England during the last quarter of the 19th century, circa 1880. The mug was produced by the Brownhills Pottery in Tunstall, Staffordshire, England. This fantastic transferware mug features the most stunning pattern. The central scene depicts the harbour at Copenhagen, Denmark. The mug also features an alphabet pattern; such designs were used as teaching aids for children during the 19th century. In the 1880s Brownhills did a complete series of pottery for children's nurseryware depicting both flora and fauna and famous places/famous landmarks. The mug also features a pretty rose which have been hand colored. To the base we find the registered design number (Rd Number) and the manufactures mark.

The font, design and the colors are timeless. This delightful mug has such a wide appeal!
