Joseph Stacey Presentation Mug

In October 2015, Gnosall Heritage Group purchased a china mug from an Ebay seller in Canada. Details were sent to the Pottery Museum and Art Gallery in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent and this is their response.

The mug is a bone china presentation mug of a shape popular in the mid-19th century. It is decorated with hand-painted flowers to either side of the gilt inscription. They were very popular as gifts throughout the 19th century, often produced with just the enamelled decoration so that the purchaser could decide on the inscription, which was then added in gold. These presentation pieces are hard to date as the shapes and style of decoration, as well as the gilding, are slow to change. The majority of dated examples occur from the period c.1840-1870.
