Archery (The Archeress), c. 1830-40s Staffordshire Child's Mug

Regular price $55.00

I can never resist an archeress, and really love that it is the sole girl here who holds the bow and arrow, while all the boys look on. With a nice big red target at the other end of the field, already holding three arrows, though no bullseye yet. A lesson in love and power for the kids of the early 19th century! 

2 13/16 t x 2 7/8 d x 3 13/16 at handle. Overall very good condition, minimal crazing, with one tiny chip to the lip, primarily visible from the interior.
