VINTAGE REDWARE MOTTOWARE COVERED MUG, "A GUID LADDIE
- Source: eBay
VINTAGE ENGLISH REDWARE MOTTOWARE COVERED MUG Offering at auction a great vintage mottoware covered mug. This pottery mug is made of redware and I believe it was made in England. T is a section on the side that has a background yelloware coloring on which the motto " For A Guid Laddie " has been incised. T are also decorative designs above and below the saying. The mug with cover measures 5 1/8" in height and the base is 3 7/8" in diameter. Its flaws are the tip of the cover's finial is unglazed; t is a chip on the inside edge of the mug; and t six nicks along the bottom rim of the cup. Most of these minor problems can be seen in the pictures I have provided. The inside of the mug has the same yellow coloring as found on the side. As can be ssen in the pictures, t is a portion of the cover that falls below and an open area to allow pouring or for heat to escape. None of this is damaged. Overall this early piece is in excellent condition with none of its flaws very noticeable. Please ask any questions before bidding and view other interesting items I am offering at auction.
