Tea Cup Tuesday - Queen Victoria 1887 - Oxford

So, this week another mug that sits on the picture window shelf in our lounge. This was a purchase from an antique shop or perhaps eBay.

Made, with no markings to commemorate the Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1887. When I purchased it, it already had the crack that is visible. I like these pieces that we made not just commemorate the event, but that they are named with the town they were from. This particular one is from Oxford. We have a plate for the 1887 Jubilee with Salisbury on.
