A Rare Arts and Crafts Pint Mug

Omar Ramsden
4.5" (11.4cm) high, 4" (10.1cm) diameter at base
11 oz

Of tapering cylindrical form with moulded spreading base, the lower part of the body applied with an unusual narrow band of chain link design and with a further plain band near the rim. The fine "S" scroll cast handle with shield-shaped terminal at the bottom and the sides with plain wires rising up to form reeded branches terminating in triple leaf motifs, either side of a graduated bud rattail.

The underside of the base inscribed " I was wrought for Jack by command of Dorothy, his wife, November 15th, 1932"

Rather like Candlesticks it is curious that Ramsden made so few mugs. It would seem he had a preference for beakers or wine cups as numerous examples of those have appeared on the market. Apart from the good weight the handle is a very stylish piece of design and craftsmanship.
