AP/393 Treacleware chocolate cups, obverse (rockingham glaze) treacleware.co.uk

Two earthenware two-handled cups, they are either loving cups or chocolate cups. Each is glazed all over with a brown treacleware glaze, the cup on the right is slightly lighter brown than the other. Each has its own applied clay leaves / flower sprig, repeated obverse and reverse sides. They have extruded fluted handles, turned feet and bases and each has a different band of impressed rouletting below the rim. These are good examples of early English treacleware, probably made by a small pottery, possibly even a country pottery, made around 1840 to 1860
