Antique Creamware Mochaware Mug with Stripes

About

This antique creamware mochaware mug or tankard is slip decorated with both vertical and horizontal stripes in three shades of brown. No two mochaware pieces are the same. Each potter made his own choices in color and design. What makes this mug so unique are those choices which the potter made in picking these shades of brown, and placing them in this wonderful pattern. Our mochaware mug is a creamware quart mug which has been dipped in brown slip then worked on a vertical lathe to cut through the slip coating. Thereby creating the vertical creamware lines. After the slip dried sufficiently the mug would have been transferred to another lathe where the horizontal lines of light brown and dark brown slip would have been added. Reference For more information on Mochaware see:  "Mocha and Related Dipped Wares" by Jonathan Rickard. D. Carpentier and J. Rickard, "Slip Decoration in the Age of Industrialization" Ceramics in America 2001. Dimensions: 6.25 inches deep x 4.25 inches diameter x 5.5 inches tall Condition: Excellent Price: $3300. Background Most of our collection of mochaware was made in England. The largest center for the production of mochaware in England was in the north of Staffordshire, but there were many other producing centers. We also have in our collection a piece of French mochaware which has a distinctive swirling design. Later in the 19th century some mochaware was made in America. However, the finest pieces, in our opinion, come from England. Slip is clay to which water has been added. In making mochaware the slip was often mixed together with oxides to create a variety of colors.
