EARLY CHILDS ALPHABET ABC MUG

BIBLE PICTURES

DANIEL IN THE LION'S DEN

BROWNHILLS POTTERY CO

Staffordshire England

c. 1880

This 2 3/4" high x 2 3/4" diameter child's mug, excluding the applied handle, has a crisp image transfer printed in dark brown with great color polychrome hand painting, clobbering in shades of golden yellow and cobalt blue.  

The image is part of the Bible Tales series coveted by collectors.  This transfer, rarely seen on the market, will be a special abc mug in your collection.

In addition to the entire ABC alphabet transfer with the classic Brownhills decorative clover transfer, this mug has a central scolled cartouche of Daniel in the Lion's den with five large cats.

Condition is great, clean shiny and bright.  Stilt marks along the top of the rim and a flake off the bottom base.  This is the only good one I have ever seen.
