Very Rare Philadelphia Stoneware Advertising Mug, attributed to Charles Wingender and Bro., Haddonfield, NJ, late 19th or early 20th century, cylindrical mug with impressed drinking gnome designs flanking the impressed advertising "COMPLIMENTS / OF / JOHN STECK / S.W. COR. / Second & Norris Sts. / PHILADELPHIA". Coggled banding above and below. Applied molded handled with beaded edge. Cobalt highlights to handle, decoration, and advertising. Excellent color. The distinctive color, gnome motifs, and handle, of this mug allow for a firm attribution to the Wingender Pottery of Haddonfield, NJ. Interestingly, another rare mug featuring advertising for John Steck and sold in Crocker Farm's November 2012 auction, was clearly made at the Richard C. Remmey Pottery of Philadelphia. This mug is the only Wingender example we have seen. Excellent, as-made condition. H 4 3/4".
