- Source: eBay
Description : Very rare blue and white salt glazed mug with high -relief birds in a floral landscape. The clay color is a creamy greyish white with speckled and sponged on blue highlights. I am listing three stoneware pottery items from my grandmothers home. They may well have been my great grand mothers as they date from the 1870's to 1900. My 89 year old uncle still lives in the same home!Size : 4 1/8 " tall x 3 3/8 " wide at base x 4 3/4 " wide overall with handle & the opening at the lip is 2 7/8 " wide. Condition : Very few pottery imperfections. No cracks, repairs, or other issues. This was always a well - loved and treasured item which is why it has survived ! Naturally their are the typical factory glaze flaws and random clay marks which give stoneware its distinction and character. If you have any questions please ask. You can as we have a 100% rating and pride ourselves on excellent packing and service. Thank you for looking !
