palethorp pint mug
i am pleased to offer this fine pint mug, made in philadelphia, pennsylvania circa 1820. it is not marked, however, it is attributed to robert palethorp, jr. it is finished and identical in every aspect to his marked examples. the inside rings on the bottom are typical of philadelphia mugs. the mug stands 4 1/4” tall, has a 3 1/4” top diameter and 3 3/4” bottom diameter. note the bold skimming marks under the base and facets on handle left by the hand scraping process during finishing. the piece is in excellent original condition with little wear.
