Mochaware Mug Decorated with Soft Blue Green & Brown Made in England, circa 1820

$420.00

Every piece of Mochaware is unique. This pitcher is decorated with slip (colored clays) in a three-color cable pattern of soft blue, beige, and chocolate brown on a beige ground. Around the top and bottom are grooved rings decorated with green glaze. Made in England circa 1820, the decoration was applied while the pitcher turned on a lathe. The terminals of the handle are decorated with a molded foliate design.

Dimensions: 6″ tall x 4.5″ diameter at widest point

Condition: Professionally restored. It looks great from the outside, but the inside has a pasty texture, showing that it has been restored.
