Edwardian pub mugs
A wonderful collection of George V pint measure pub mugs in a stunning azure blue glaze; increasingly difficult to find these days, and especially in such good condition.
Made by Pountney & Co. Ltd. of Bristol, these rare Edwardian 1 pint mocha ware pub mugs were once common in late nineteenth century/early twentieth century pubs. They are glazed in an intense sky blue and the watermark on the side (see images) is the stamp for King George V - a crown flanked by the letters G and R, George Rex.
We are selling them individually. Please make your choice by first highlighting the second image, and then make your selection in the box below.
