Early Pink and Gold 

Sunderland Lustre Mugs w/ Dragon Handle

   

These early Sunderland Lustre Mugs are English made and fired in the traditional pink and gold fish eye colors.  One pictures a hand-painted triangle with "Wisdom, Strength and Beauty" and a Blazing Sun in the center.   The other depicts a man in the moon with seven stars and an acacia border!  There most striking feature is the unbroken dragon handles, a typical Chinese feature borrowed and put to use by English potters.  They stand 5 inches tall and measure 5 inches in diameter.
