Information

A very unusual majolica mug moulded with bamboo stems in naturalistic colours. Inside are two hand modelled frogs - one would be unusual, but two must be extremely rare. In excellent condition - no damage or restoration. On close inspection there is a glaze crack where the top of the handle joins the body, it goes halfway round and would have happened in the kiln during manufacture. Stable and nothing to detract from the character and display value of this very scarce item. Unmarked except for painted decorator's mark, though probably Scottish (Bellfield's of Prestonpans?). Height 11cm (4.3in)
