Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: CROWNING GLORY The Stratton Collection of Royal Commemorative Mugs This collection of British souvenir mugs ranges from the reign of George III, through his appalling son, 'Prinny', later George IV, to the long reign of Victoria with three commemorating her Coronation. The transfer-printed portraits, mostly Staffordshire but including rare Worcester examples, include various mugs from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's long reign. GEORGE III A Worcester bell-shaped Mug, c.1758, with three transfer prints in black and the initials R I and Liberty beneath military trophies and a crown flanked by George II and sailing ships, 14.5cm Apparently the first royal commemorative on porcelain.

Description: A Worcester Mug, c.1761, transfer printed in black by L Sadler, Liverpool and so signed, the portrait of the king within elaborate scrollwork, one engraved 'George III King of Great Britain', slight wear, 11.5cm The portrait was apparently engraved by Billinge after Jeremiah Mayer for a competition for the Society for the Encouragement of Arts. It was once held that the mugs were sold in the white to Liverpool for the transfer to be applied. This is obviously not feasible.

Description: A Coalport porcelain Tankard, October 25th 1809, transfer printed in black with a portrait of George III and a banner inscribed 'Glorious Jubilee to England' between gilts lines, wear and restored, 10cm The king was, at this date, in the throes of porphyria and unable to reign effectively; his son, later George IV, was Regent. It is interesting to note that the moulded handle has been borrowed from a contemporary Chinese example.

Lot 423: A rare Cambrian pearlware Mug, c.1790, of

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: A rare Cambrian pearlware Mug, c.1790, of cylindrical form, transfer printed in blue-black with silhouettes of George III, Caroline, Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette formed from the outlines of two candelabra, the French 'portraits' of France flanked by a broken crown, and all inscribed 'A New Puzzle of Portraits Striking Likenefses of the King & Queen of England and the late King & Queen of France', 9cm The Mysterious Urn was copied from a print drawn for the Loyalists of the guillotined Louis XVI and Queen Antoinette (1783), the disguised portraits ensuring that, if raided, their oppressors would not link the 'innocent' urn with their royal support. They ordered copies from the Chinese very soon after the atrocity. Since Britain was at war with France at the date of this mug, it is unlikely to have been supportive, although revolutionary France was much admired by the lower orders who hated the ghastly (as they saw it) Hanoverians (particularly Prinny). More likely it was simply made as an amusing trick.

The king and queen visited the Worcester factory in 1788, bought several services and gave permission for them to use the crown in their mark.

The accession date of 1819 was incorrect and should have been 1820.

The profile medallion is after the Wyon Medal and shows the much-derided 'Prinny' as a Roman emperor.

Description: A very rare moulded pearlware Tankard, probably 1822, the portrait of George IV wearing military style uniform above a banner impressed 'King George IIII' between flowers, all carefully picked out in enamels reserved on a pink lustre ground, 13.4cm This large mug may well be Scottish and commemorating the visit of George to Scotland, much against his courtiers' advice. He devised his own uniform to the horror of his advisers, but to the delight of his Scottish people.

'Prinny', while having married Mrs Fitzherbert

Lot 431: 'Prinny', while having married Mrs Fitzherbert

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 'Prinny', while having married Mrs Fitzherbert morganatically, was forced by his father to divorce Mrs Fitzherbert and marry his choice, the German Princess Caroline. On her arrival in London, Prinny was disappointed. She was nothing like the portrait miniature supplied and she bathed very infrequently. He went to the wedding drunk and weighing 20 stone. Despite this, on that, his wedding night, they managed to conceive - the only time he slept with Caroline. He then tried to divorce her, which needed an Act of Parliament. The evidence he concocted was presented to parliament in green cloth bags and largely comprised soiled bed sheets from her supposed relationship with an Italian Count. She returned to England for the coronation in 1821 wearing a hat with the three ostrich feathers of the Prince of Wales in which she is invariably depicted - see the following lot. The populous, loathing Prinny for his excesses, but rooting for Caroline, lined the streets and acclaimed her. At Westminster Abbey, Prinny had lodged gatekeepers, including the World Champion pugilist, Tom Cribb, preventing her entering on the grounds that she hadn't got a ticket. Distraught, Caroline turned away and died some months later, some saying she was poisoned - see lot 432. Despite his monstrosity, Prinny, a gambler, spendthrift and womaniser, was actually a man of great aesthetic taste. He built Carlton House (hence the desk) to his design, the Brighton Pavilion and formed its Sèvres collection, now belonging to Her Majesty the Queen. A man of curious contrasts. A rare pearlware Mug, c.1820, printed in black with a commemoration of the Parliamentary Bill to divorce Caroline (which failed), the base ribbed, the mouth pink lustre, some wear, 8.8cm According to May: 'Possibly the rarest of Carolinae known'. Illustrated as plate 57. The print shows the scales of justice overseen by John Bull with speech bubbles reading 'Well done Caroline, they think to make light of you, but it won't do, I'll see fair play'. The lighter Prinny, trying to be dragged down by courtiers and the law beneath bags titled 'Green' and 'Secrets', but much outweighed by Caroline, with justice on her side, and acclaiming soldiers. This took place at the height of the Napoleonic Wars, hence the soldiers and ships in the background.

Two Queen Caroline Mugs, c.1820, one creamware

Lot 432: Two Queen Caroline Mugs, c.1820, one creamware

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Two Queen Caroline Mugs, c.1820, one creamware with a black portrait, one porcelain with a puce portrait, both titled, 7 and 6.5cm, and a lustre Mug, with a long verse 9.4cm, all with minor faults (3) The last commemorates Caroline's death and ends with a couplet 'On Earth thou could'st not crowned be, But here thou art Eternally'. This mug is an interesting commentary on the ceramic industry of the time. The swag and pateræ border on the last would have been engraved on a copper plate at least twenty-five years earlier and held in the pottery in case they would ever find a use for it.

It was not one he enjoyed, being far more interested in the navy and fathering - it is believed - over a hundred children.

May p.79, pl.80.

Description: QUEEN VICTORIA Victoria, like her uncle, William, was not expected to inherit the throne. She was crowned on 28th June 1838 in scenes of complete chaos. Nobody had rehearsed, nobody knew where to stand, and the Archbishop lost his place in the prayer book. Nevertheless, Victoria, ever the enthusiast, recorded the occasion pleasurably in her diary. A waisted pottery Mug, with purple portraits of the young Victoria with a crown (which didn't fit her) and the national emblems, the inside with a leafy scroll border, staining, 8.3cm

Description: Two pottery Mugs, c.1840, each commemorating the marriage of Victoria and Albert, in red or black transfer, 7.5 and 6cm (2) Victoria had known Albert from childhood, but when he came to England as a young man, she was immediately besotted. Far from being the strait-laced 'we are not amused' (although she probably never said it!), it is clear from her diary that she found Albert and intimate activity much to her taste.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: A pearlware Memorial Mug, 1861/2, printed in brown, on the exterior with transfer prints of Albert surrounded by allegorical symbols, the interior with a rose band, star crack, 8cm, and a bone china Mug, c.1840, also commemorating Albert's death, printed in puce and titled above a blue dot and yellow border, 7.5cm (2) The first has the 'Empire' feel of a mug forty years later. It would probably have appealed to Queen Victoria as it depicts a bas-relief of Albert crowned with a laurel wreath by Britannia above a miserable looking lion, the other side with Britannia mourning, another lion, a weeping willow, the Great Exhibition buildings and a palette and brushes symbolic of Albert's influence on the arts of the time. Victoria was inconsolable after the death of Albert and she never recovered, retiring in mourning black until urged by her ministers to show herself for the Golden and Diamond Jubilees.

Oddly, the Chinese, perhaps unfamiliar with the use of the object, have fired it upside-down.
