A tall Worcester blue and white mug c.1780, the cylindrical form printed with Man Holding a Gun and Man Shooting a Gun, each hunter in a rural landscape and accompanied by a hound, fluted strap handle, hatched crescent mark, 14.3cm.

These shooting prints appear to be confined to cylindrical mugs of varying size, but the more common Man Shooting Gun print is usually seen alongside a print of a man aiming a gun, while the second print on this example is far less common.
