Overall: 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 x 4 1/2 in. ( 13.3 x 13.3 x 11.4 cm )
impressed: and raised, around medallion: "D · G · MAG · BRIT · FRANCET · HIB · REX · & · WILHELMUS III ·"
Stoneware mug decorated with impressed flowers and incised scrolling vines surrounding an octagonal medallion with the portrait of a king, on a cobalt blue background with reddish purple manganese on rosettes and also on wide cylindrical neck with incised bands.
Though this mug is in the style of the late 17th century, it has certain characteristics, including a slight outcurving of the neck, that suggest it might have been made in the 20th century.
Gift of Mrs. J. Insley Blair
