Little mottos and advice from Dr Benjamin Franklin’s book Poor Richard’s Almanac was often used on what is now known as  Maxim Ware.  This is an auction for two of these soft paste children’s mugs, one in red transfer and one in blue/black transfer. 


It is rare to find any that are in top notch shape and they fetch large sums.  These two both show their age, which is around 180 odd years, and please check the pics all carefully, as they show all flaws. Even as they are, they are oh so very collectable.  Red mug is unmarked but possibly an Edge Malkin piece. It is 70mm high. The black one is marked Davenport and is 65mm high.
