The Mug has a slightly tapering can shaped form and stands on a reeded foot. The lower half of the main body is decorated with swirling flutes and lobes, below a band of semi-circles and punched foliate designs. The upper section displays wide reeded bands and a slightly everted rim. The Mug has a scroll reeded side handle and displays original interior hammer marks from when it was made. The Mug is very well marked on the side of the main body and is of an unusual size and was most probably made for the use of a Lady. Samuel Lee is a scarce maker, who entered his first mark in 1701, therefore this represents and early example of his work.
