A fine Caughley porcelain beer mug printed with their version of Worcester's pine cone pattern to one side and their Rose Centred Spray on the other with a detailed floral band down the handle and further smaller fruit and flowers sprigs. It is quite a busy arrangement but very crisp detail on the main prints and a lovely dark indigo tone makes it an attractive example. 

Unusually marked with an open crescent to the base (distinct from the hatched crescent found on Worcester printed wares).

Reference: Caughley & Worcester Porcelains, Godden, pages 40-43 for copies of the plates of these prints including the open crescent mark associated with the rose print as an option alongside the usual "C" mark.

It measures 4 5/8" (11.8) and 8.7cm (3 3/8") rim to rim.

In excellent condition with no damage, repair or restoration. There is a small firing crack at the rim and another glaze fault inside the base.
