Antique striped mochaware mug or tankard, slip decorated with both vertical and horizontal lines in three shades of brown. What makes this mug so unique and beautiful is how the artist chose these colors, and then chose the placement of the colors.

Our mochaware mug is a creamware quart mug which has been dipped in brown slip then worked on a vertical lathe to cut through the slip coating. Thereby creating the vertical creamware lines. After the slip dried sufficiently the mug would have then been transferred to another lathe where the horizontal lines of light brown and dark brown slip would have been added. It was an intricate process.

History

Most of our collection of mochaware was made in England. The largest center for the production of mochaware in England was in the north of Staffordshire, but there were many other producing centers. We also have in our collection a piece of French mochaware which has a distinctive swirling design. Later in the 19th century some mochaware was made in America. However, the finest pieces, in our opinion, come from England.

Slip is clay to which water has been added. In making mochaware the slip was often mixed together with oxides to create a variety of colors.
