Mug with Aesthetic Transfer circa 1875Mug with Aesthetic Transfer circa 1875Mug with Aesthetic Transfer circa 1875Mug with Aesthetic Transfer circa 1875Mug with Aesthetic Transfer circa 1875

The body of this earthenware mug is a pale green/gray "putty" color, and the aesthetic design transfer is in deep blue/gray. Motifs include butterfly, floral and a geometric/framed landscape. Typical of the fad for Japanesque motifs in the 19th century. Only mark is a printed square on base, which may be a fragment of a mark or simply a stray piece of transfer. Probably English, and judging by the design of the mug and transfer, I would date this circa 1875.

Size: Approximately 3.125" high.

Condition: Excellent, with only some minor interior and bottom staining. Stray piece of clay fired on base rim during manufacture. No chips, cracks or repairs.

Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, Returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
