The white, Chinese export porcelain mug, also occasionally called a tankard, has a cylindrical body that curves inward near the rim and above raised beading. Raised beading also runs around the base. The interlaced strap handle attaches at four rose-colored molded floral sites. The body has small floral motifs around it. The rim has a gilded and blue band above a wavy gilded and blue band punctuated by floral sprays. A pseudo armorial device within an oval order is painted opposite the handle.
