A rare and early Caughley monogrammed and dated mug

A rare and early Caughley monogrammed mug
dated 1776
painted in blue with fruit sprays, an elaborate scroll cartouche enclosing a musical treble clef and the initials 'CD',
crescent with serif mark, 8.5cm high

Hitherto unrecorded, this mug forms part of a small collection of pieces dated 1776, which is the earliest known date to be inscribed on Caughley. A similar example sold at these rooms as part of Maurice Wright's Collection in April 2017 and the painted date on both mugs can be attributed to the same hand.

Sold for £3,600
