3.5” H; 3.5” D
Late 19th century
This highly decorated mug has purple lusterware banding around the top and handle, and concentric circles on both sides. One side reads “Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his maker.” The other side has a black and white transferware image showing a woman talking to two well dressed girls.
WHY WE LOVE IT: This valuable lesson should always be remembered, especially with the Cinderella-type theme of this mug.
