Religious Comment upon the Monarchy: a rare and interesting London brown stoneware tankard of substantial size dating from the first half of the 18th century, the upper part of the cylindrical body with partial brown glazing and applied with moulded head and shoulder portraits of William and Mary centred by an oak tree with the head of Charles gazing out entitled 'Royal Oak' flanked by the incised initials J G, the tail of a similarly incised letter above, together with mouldings of orange trees, figures, horses, deer, dogs and roses, nominal half gallon capacity, 198mm high, the rim reduced.

* In comparing this mug to a variety of smaller mugs each with a very similar handle shape there is to be found a distinct similarity to the moulded banding around the base also the hunting scenes. These are attributed to Vauxhall, Southwark or Fulham Potteries and date from the first half of the 18th century and more specifically the 1720's. See 'Browne Muggs, English Brown Stoneware' by Robin Hildyard, an exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum in 1985. Quite probably produced sometime shortly after the Jacobite rising of the Old Pretender in 1715 in support of a Protestant Monarchy although just perhaps for that of the Young Pretender in 1745 however the reference to both William and Mary would suggest the former.
