A Child’s Mug

This item is new to Market Lavington Museum and we know nothing about it. We hope any readers might be able to help identify age and possible maker of this little mug.

The decoration appears to be a transfer which either was not applied all that well, or, which has suffered from regular washing.

The mug features the nursery rhyme, ‘Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man’

The only other decoration is on the other side of the mug.

The only other decoration – a violet flower

There is not a maker’s name on the base. There are some dots, which may have some significance.

Dots on the base. Are they significant?

If you can tell us anything about this rather sweet little mug then do get in touch.
