Although the handmade mug is more than 150 years-old, it is still in good shape. The glaze texture is smooth and with tiny grains in it. The mug handle has a beautiful curve.

Salt glazed stoneware has a long history. It became popular in England from the 17th century. By throwing common salt(sodium chloride) into the wood-fired kiln during the firing process, thin glaze will be formed on the stoneware ranging from colorless to a bright brown color. Ink pots, mugs, jars and platters were often produced in this way. However, salt glazes stoneware gradually became less popular after the availability of earthenware(ceramics).
