A white-bodied wheel-thrown mug or small tankard, with blue slip banded decoration. White clay applied sprigs of flowers (repeated four times around body). There is a brown frog on the inside standing on his hind legs but the front legs do not touch the sides of the mug. Simple moulded handle with internal and external spurs. Turned foot and recessed base. The clear glaze shows blue where it pools.

Similar items were made in many potting centres, including Staffordshire, Bristol and elsewhere.

Banded ware is a close relation of mochaware (or mocha ware) but lacks the dendritic tree like decoration.

Pot ID:

AP/1041

Date:

c.1850-1870

Dimensions:

109mm high (to top of handle spur).

Weight (grams):

473

The frog appears to have been detached and re-stuck, with some signs (paint and varnish) of having had a small amount of restoration to lower mouth and throat - though this is difficult to examine closely due to the position of the frog. The mug itself is in excellent condition.
