Description

Every piece of mochaware is unique. Decorated with a three color cable pattern of dark brown, light brown, and white slip this mug is a small gem!

Made in England circa 1820 it would have been turned on a lathe. The turner decorated the mug with concentric bands of dark brown above and below a large central band of coffee colored brown slip. The turner then applied a three color cable of marbled slip design over the central coffee colored slip band.

The use of cable patterns on mochaware is an English invention created around 1810.
