Mochaware Mug with White Trailed Slip in Wavy Lines & Blue & Black Stripes
This mug features three trailed white slip wavy lines on a panel decorated with black slip. The three trailed lines on the black slip are well controlled. Combined with crisp sky-blue and black stripes on a clean white ground, they create an elegant design. To make the clean white color, the creamware body was pearled with just a bit of cobalt.
Made in England, circa 1830.
