This has been in the same family since 1877 and we are convinced that it has the privilege of being one of only 9 ever made and as such is a collector’s item of some considerable merit and interest not to mention intrinsic value (yawn zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz)

This mug is not in mint condition. It has a few small dents and it has been over-cleaned (presumably by a proud mother). We have not cleaned it.

Offers considered.
