The Mug stands on a spreading applied foot which is decorated with reeding. The main body has an unusual baluster form, which rises to an everted, reeded rim. This example has a facetted scroll handle and is very well marked in the foot. The front is engraved with a contemporary Armorial, with Crest above, all surrounded by a scroll, strap work and trellis cartouche, which is typical of the designs at this date and which has been finely executed. The base is also engraved with the contemporary intials AP to EC. The Arms are those of Cox. The Mug is in excellent condition and has a fine colour. It is modelled in an unusual form, not often seen. John Eckfourd was apprentice to Philip Rollos and this would account for the quality of this mug.
