c 1850's Antique Child's Stoneware Staffordshire Sprigged Mug
#AD026 RL130 Brownware Child's Mug
A beautiful and classic small children's 19th c. English Staffordshire brown ware pottery cup, mug or coffee can embellished with flowers, leaves and grapes sprigged in cream and treacle brown slip glaze, a fine and handsome piece of antique stoneware. It has a transparent and honey glaze, as seen in photos.
It is cream and brown in colour, with the top embossed with a decorative running dot edge. It measures 2.5 inches in height, small, made for a young child.
This old piece is in beautiful condition and was recently found in Devon, England. We were happy to find it, and love to think of a small child holding it, drinking tea by the fire. The whole sprig mug, cup or can has a glossy glaze, including the bottom, and is of high quality. It was most likely produced in Staffordshire, England. It is unmarked as these old stoneware pieces generally are.
Condition, beautiful, some Staffordshire firing dust on bottom rim, which we thinks adds to the charm. We have photographed this piece with our trusty old thimble to show relative size.
Size: 2.5 in height x 3 inches wide including handle
