The Mug stands on an applied circular foot and has a baluster main body and everted rim. This piece has a scroll handle and the front is engraved with a contemporary Armorial surrounded by a floral and foliate spray cartouche.
The Mug is fully marked in the foot and has a good colour. Thomas Farren was a Royal maker and was subordinate Goldsmith to George II 1723-42.
His most important pieces are most probably the fountain and cistern of 1728 at Burghley House, Lincolnshire.
