c. 1900 Edwardian Royal Doulton Sprigged Relief English Stoneware Mug
#AD074: Coffee Can, Cider Tankard Mug, Cup, Tankard
This is a beautiful treacle sprig relief or sprigged English Brewery cider, ale mug, tankard or coffee can. It is from the Edwardian area, and consists of classic English hunting views, running hound dogs, smoking men with pipes, topers, running deer and tavern or pub scenes. The Royal Doulton Co. factory started as an 1815 partnership between John Doulton, Martha Jones, and John Watts at Vauxhall Walk, Lambeth, London.
This is a well marked stoneware, saltglaze piece with an exceptionally clear impressed mark. The mark has the interlocking D motif, and numbers 8413 and x2888, which dates it manufactured from 1881 to 1910, as well as a clear "Made in England" mark. It is glazed in beautiful treacle brown and cream, and has a substantial and thickly made five banded handle.
This piece, in beautiful condition, was found in Newton Abbott, Devon, England. Click images to see condition in close up views. A great original vintage breweriana related piece, in the cleanest condition of these that we have seen. Chunky, clean and wonderfully smooth in your hand. A real beauty.
