Description:
James Monroe: Sought-After "Munroe" Miniature Mug. The charming misspelling of the 5th president's name only adds appeal to collectors. Universally believed to have been made during his time in office, it is one of the few items of any kind available to hobbyists to celebrate Monroe's presidency. The blue and white portrait mugs have sold several times at upwards of $20,000. Condition is beautiful on this attractive mug with patriotic eagle as well. Off-white color and relatively thin construction suggest it was made in Liverpool for American sale. While most Liverpool pottery with American subjects originated before the War of 1812, a few were made after the War, notably the 1824 creamer picturing Lafayette and Washington. Height 2.5".
