Description

Made for Arthur Robson the Furnisher of Shildon. The mug has a gilded rim (much worn) and handle. A small hairline crack internally and some crazing to the glaze as you’d expect at nearly 100 years old, but still holds liquids. Overall: 75 mm x 97 mm x 77 mm.

Why not pair up with a Hackworth coaster?
