A rare set of graduated Lowestoft porcelain mugs, hand decorated in underglaze blue c1770-75.
Godden Writes “It would appear from the few surviving sets that mugs were originally made in sets of graduated sizes. Some where inscribed with names and dates and others with stock patterns”
Large Mug This mug measures 12.8cm in diameter including the handle and stands 14.6cm tall. It is In good condition except for a fine crack to the base. There is no other damage or any restoration.
