RARE 19th Century Wedgwood Mug Creamware Aesthetic Movement Butterfly Humming Bird AF - image 1 of 10

This is a fabulous mug! This rare hand decorated mug was produced by Wedgwood during the last quarter of the 19th century. This 1870s creamware mug features a transfer printed design hand decorated depicting a butterfly, humming bird and a pretty flower! The mug also features a lovely orange and red ribbed border and handle. The base of the mug features the impressed ‘Wedgwood’ mark along with a letter date code and a black hand painted painters/pattern number mark.

This is a beautiful piece of Wedgwood and is one of our favourite items.

This lovely mug will display excellently alongside your collection of 18th and 19th century ceramics or folk art. Please see our collection of 18th and 19th century art and antiques listed separately in our store.

Measuring: Width including handle 5 1/8 inch (13 cm) by height 4 inch (10.5 cm).

Condition: Heavy staining to the interior, looks like it was used to store brushes by an artist maybe. Some pooling of the glaze beneath rim from manufacturing. A few light grazes to edges of handle.
