Hooray for Farmers! This jumbo mug was produced by William Adams of Staffordshire, England, sometime between 1891 and 1920. It is in the style of Staffordshire wares from the first half of the nineteenth century, its design transfer printed with overpainted details. Various farm implements are pictured along with the following verse:

Let the Wealthy & Great,
Roll in Splendor & State,
I envy them not I declare it.
I eat my own Lamb,
My chickens and Ham,
I shear my own Fleece & I wear it
I have Lawns, I have Bow’rs,
I have Fruits, I have Flow’rs,
The Lark is my morning alarmer.
So jolly Boys now,
Here’s God speed the Plough,
Long Life & Succefs to
the Farmer.

Measures 3 5/8 inches high, 4 7/8 inches diameter, not including handle. Printed and painted marks.

Overall condition is very good, with no chips, cracks or repairs. There are some skips in the transfer printing, as is typical, and some minor roughness at the foot, but this is just in the manufacturing, not any sort of damage.
