VERY EARLY SLIP DECORATED CHILDS MUG

A PRESENT FOR MY GIRL

Staffordshire England  ~  
c. 1820

This desirable mug from the Staffordshire region of England stands a mere 2 3/8 " tall x 2 1/4 " wide excluding the applied handle.

A wonderful pearlware mug with brown slip, similar to mochaware, covering the piece and a band of blue slip near the rim.  A darker brown band graces the top of the mug with dark brown decoration along the handle.

A transfer from an old copperplate of a Goat and the inscription : A PRESENT FOR MY GIRL, completes this exceptional piece.

A rare find.  Light weight and beautifully potted with no chips, cracks, hairline or repairs.  Light glaze loss along the rim.  You won't find a better example.
