This stoneware mug was hand made around 1910. Albany slip (liquid clay) covers all the surfaces except the interior. The Albany slip was applied thinly and is studded with glaze pops, including the handle and the bottom. The mug was salt glazed after the Albany slip was applied and the stilt marks are clearly visible on the bottom. It has a straight body, an angled handle and flares out at the base.

The mug is 5 ¼ inches tall, 3 3/8 inches across the top and 3 1/8 inches across the bottom. It’s a sturdy piece, weighing 10 ounces, and in very good condition, with no cracks or chips and only faint crazing on the interior.

This is a handsome addition to your pottery collection.
