A charming cartographic creamware drinking mug with a boldly printed double-hemisphere world map in a decorative surround. Creamware is the term used to define ceramic products of a certain colour produced in the UK from around 1750 to compete with imported, and more expensive, Chinese porcelain. This small mug, with a few stable cracks and chips, is decorated with a copperplate engraved transfer showing the world outline in rather naive and outdated form - the pre-Cook New Zealand west coast and Tasmania are visible along with the "Great Southern Continent" of pre-Tasman days. The spheres sit above a title piece, while beneath the radiant sun appears from the behind the clouds - decoration very much in the rococo style of the mid- to late-eighteenth century.
