Mochaware Tankard

0.00

Georgian Mochaware tankard or pint mug, excise stamped GR 19, made by TG Green of Church Gresley, Derbyshire. It would have originally been used in a public house for ale. Small hairline crack and some discolouration to inside base. Wonderful character. Early 20th century.

Named after a type of desirable agate shipped from the port of Mocha in Yemen (more famed for its coffee of course) Mocha decoration is made by dripping a coloured acidic solution into wet alkaline slip. This produces random dendritic marking resembling mocha stone and as such, each one is unique. This one has cobalt blue and buff markings.

 

H: 12.5cm W: 13.5cm D: 9cm
