PRESENT FOR MY DEAR BOY

Child's yellow glazed mug, ca. 1820
I thought I would mark the birth of my newest grandson with some children's patterns made for boys.
Children's china was often intended as a reward of merit or a christening gift.  Here are a few of my favorites.  All are from the first half of the 19th century.

Child's mug, 2 inches high by 1.88 inches in diameter, ca. 1825


Child's plate, 7.5 inches in diameter, ca. 1830

Child's mug, 2.75 inches high, ca. 1840

Child's creamware plate, 5.62 inches in diameter, ca, 1820

Child's Yellow glazed mug, 2.5 inches high, ca, 1820
