Compton Export Pint Mug
I am most pleased to offer this straight-sided mug made in London, England for export to early America. It is nicely marked inside with the 'lamb and dove' touch used by Townsend and Thomas Compton from 1802 to 1814. The partners crowned 'WR' mark is struck to the side next to the handle. The mug is in very good condition with hand scraping marks evident on the 'attention' style handle. The simple classical design certainly works well on the pint capacity mug. The piece stands 4 1/2" tall.
