A good creamware mug, dated 1781
Probably North Eastern, of cylindrical form with delicately moulded border, painted in colours opposite the handle with a cooper at work, inscribed 'Jno and Cath'n Little, 1781' within a distinctive border of naively painted roses and yellow diaper, 12.2cm high (rim chip)


  • Exhibited in the ECC Shipwrecks and Marriages Exhibition 2009. The painting on this mug is closely related to a coffee pot in the Laing Gallery in Newcastle inscribed 'Ann Fenwick 1778', illustrated by Tom Walford, Early Creamware from North East England, Creamwares and Pearlwares Re-Visited (2005), p 111. The beaded moulding is similar to that on the mug illustrated at p 110. The handle terminals are the same as on the following lot in this sale, suggesting a North Eastern origin for this group.
