EARLY CHILDS ALPHABET ABC MUG
FAMILY OF OWLS
Staffordshire England c. 1860
This 2 3/4 " wide x 2 3/4 " tall children's alphabet mug is beautifully transfer printed in rich blue green.
The mug has the entire ABC alphabet transfer with leaf and flower divisions and wonderful geometric designs. A family of owls, mother and three young owls sit perched upon a flowering branch over a pond. Coming out of the pond's water lilies is a very ornate fish, seems to be almost smiling.
The mug displays beautifully and is quite rare to find this Owl mug. No damage other than a few small chips off the base.
