Samuel Alcock ‘lavender-sprigged’ porcelain mug, countryfolk, c. 1835
Delightful Samuel Alcock bone china mug, the white ground decorated with 9 evenly spaced sprigs in lavender clay, each depicting a ‘rural pursuit’ within a short grass & tree landscape.
7.5cm high, 11cm wide
very short rim crack (10mm) , minor discolouration
ref. ‘Compendium’ pl 808 for the sprigs on a distinct Alcock cup shape. Godden in ‘Staffordshire Porcelain’ mistakenly attributes this same cup & sprigging to the then-under documented Hicks & Meigh concern.
