Rare Antique Victorian English  Personalised Child’s Mug – for William

rare antique victorian personalised child mug william blue transferware christening birthday present

This is a beautiful and rarely seen example of a Victorian child’s mug, personalised with the name ‘William’.

Dating from the 1800s, this mug is still a wonderful example. The personalised ‘William’ name takes centre stage across the front of the mug. The name is made up of a multitude of dots, with darker blue tones providing a shaded effect to the typography.

Framing the name is a wonderful blue coloured transferware floral and scrolled pattern.

Considering the age of this mug, it is in fine condition. The blue is still very vivid. There is stained crazing all over, and the glaze has some nibbles and more notable staining around the top rim. There is also a small hairline across the handle. However, this is tight and stable.

This is a lovely piece to purchase for a special ‘William’ in your life.
