Vintage Treacle Glazed Tankard w/ coaching Scenes - Ridgways

Dating from the late 1950s - early 60s this is a treacle glazed tankard shaped large mug with silvered rim and handle. It features two illustrations from "Coaching Days and Coaching Ways" by  W. Outram Tristram, originally published by Macmillan and Sons in 1988 but seemingly continuously available in one form or another for almost 100 years. The illustrations are "Down the Hill on a Frosty Morning" and "Changing Horses". These tankards are not uncommon but to find one in excellent condition is becoming more difficult. There is some general crazing and a little bit of wear to the silvering on the handle where the thumb would rest but otherwise it's in very good shape indeed.
