English Neoclassical Staffordshire Pottery Child's Cup a Reward for Industry

375.00

A small English neoclassical Staffordshire black transfeware pottery cup with the words a reward for Industry printed on a shield, in the center, surmounted by an eagle and flanked, on the left, by Hebe, holding a vessel, and, on the right, Jupiter holding a cup, with their names printed below as a caption. Silver luster decorative bands at the top and bottom and on the strap handle. Hebe was the Greek goddess of youth and cupbearer of the gods who served ambrosia at the heavenly feast. She was also the patron goddess of the young bride and an attendant of the goddess Aphrodite. Jupiter (Zeus) was her father. This cup would have been given as a gift to a deserving and, apparently, hardworking (industrious) child.

Height: 3 1/8” Width: 3 3/8” Depth: 2 1/2”
