Rare Cliff House San Francisco Antique Old English Staffordshire Ale Mug Red Transferware
A rare piece of antique Old English Staffordshire pottery by Adams & Sons (with Jonroth) for the well known Cliff House in San Francisco California. This red transferware ale mug depicts the bay and restaurant on both sides and is in Very Good estate condition with no chips, cracks or breaks. It will hold 2 3/4 cups or 22 ounces of your favorite beverage. This is considered red transferware and is the typical red transferware color although we always felt it was more a burgundy or dark pink. It will make a wonderful display when not in use.
This antique pottery mug stands 6 1/2" tall. There is crazing seen under magnification but with no discoloration - we mention for accuracy. This English Staffordshire mug has the Adams and Jonroth maker's mark c1910. It is in beautiful condition for it's age. This is a superb piece for the San Francisco Collector.
