The Mug is modelled in the unusual "Can" form with slightly tapering sides and a reeded rim and base. The applied scroll handle is also reeded and the interior displays original gilding. The front is crisply engraved with a bright cut navette shaped cartouche containing the contemporary script initials "EJ". The base is beautifully engraved with " The Gift of Mrs Collins, 1798", the same date as the Mug. The small size suggests that this was for a child or Lady.
