A rare and early Caughley monogrammed mug
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.
