Pottery Mark Query JW WEBSTER:- Grandfather was a rhododendron nut when they were first brought over to the US. This was obviously his.

The mug has a picture of a Rhododendron Macrophyllum double truss in bloom, below it are the words of a song, "Thy sons oh Washington be-loved lift up lift up their heads in pride". On the back is a single half opened truss with the word "Washington" along one leaf. The leaves are green and the truss is pink. There is gilt on the mug rim, handle and on the bottom

Bottom of mug reads:

No. 42
J.W. Webster
Bone China
Made in

I Googled JW WEBSTER in every way I could think of and get nothing!
