Item specifics

Manufacturer/ Type: Staffordshire Sub-Type: Cats
Material: Pearlware Use: Decorative
Date: c.1840-c.1900 Boxed/ Unboxed: Unboxed
Product Type: Mugs

On offer is a super Late Victorian Transfer Printed Pearlware Childs Nursery Mug.

The transfer printed image is based on the artwork of Louis Wain.

This little mug is in lovely condition with only a small firing line on the handle base and minimal friting around the top rim as can be see in the photos.

No chips, cracks, crazing or restoration.

The verse on the reverse of the mug reads : " Can't spell CAT ? Disgraceful Why i could spell it with only three mistakes long before i was your age! "

The image itself has been printed in more of a green tint colour rather than blue or black and is in good vibrant conditon.

Standing 3 inches or 7.5 cm tall and weighing just over 156g unpacked.

Quite a rare and hard to find item of nursery ware especially in this conditon.

All items sent well packaged via signed for U.K. or International Signed for Delivery.

Not the cheapest but the safest for all parties.

Packing will be to a very high standard.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for your time and patience with me.
