c 1850's Antique Child's Stoneware Staffordshire Sprigged Mug
A beautiful and classic small children's 19th c. English Staffordshire 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 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.
Size: 2.5 in height x 3.5 inches wide including handle
