A charming scarce Victorian Farmers Arms mug, produced by Wood & Hulme 1882-1905. This example likely dates c.1885.

The passage reads:

Let the wealthy and great

Roll in splendour and state

I envy them not I declare it

I eat my own lamb

My own chickens and ham

I shear my own fleece and wear it

I have lawns I have bowers

I have fruits I have flowers

The lark is my Morning alarmer

So my jolly boys now

Heres God speed the plough

Long life and success to the farmer

The opposite side of the mug boasts numerous illustrations associated with farming to include hay, a plough, cattle and a lady churning butter to name but a few. The inside rim is adorned with corn and leaves.

There is some very light crazing to the glaze in areas but otherwise the mug remains in an excellent condition throughout with no chips or cracks. The maker's mark remains clearly visible to the base. 

A lovely example of an increasingly scarce piece.
