Vintage Cobalt Blue Mug - Boy With Begging Dog - Bryce Brothers - Victorian Era Glass - EAPG

$15.96 $19.95

Featured here is a pretty unique piece of collectible glass. This cobalt blue mug features what looks to be a small boy hand feeding a begging dog, meanwhile, on the other side, a baby on his hands and knees is crawling toward a dog dish. Wow. Measures 3 3/8 inches tall and about 3 3/16 inches in diameter at the rim. Looks to be a Victorian era piece made by Bryce Brothers in the 1880s. This mug is quite the conversation starter and it would make a great addition to your vintage glass collection. Good vintage condition with a fleabite or two around the base and some roughness around the rim. Typical bubbles and straw marks. Here's the link to the mug in the EAPG database:

Shipping Policy

I do combine shipping and refund shipping overages in excess of $1.50 (covers shipping materials) above actual cost, I’m not trying to make money off of shipping charges. I strive to ship items no later than the following business day. Items are generally shipped USPS priority mail which includes $50 insurance. All items are carefully packaged. If an item is damaged during shipping, please take pictures and let me know immediately so a claim can be filed with the shipper. If you prefer an alternate shipping method please send me a message to discuss options.

Sometimes Priority Mail shipping is cost prohibitive (especially for those on the West Coast). Send me a message and we’ll see if Flat Rate shipping is possible. Prices for this service is generally about $19 for a “Large” box and about $13.65 for a “Medium” box. Note that USPS Flat Rate boxes aren’t that big, so this might not be an option when purchasing larger items.


All items are described as accurately as possible, and any damage noted. Items are twenty or more years old and may show wear consistent with age/use. I encourage you to ask any questions prior to purchase. I generally do not accept returns, but there are always exceptions, so please message me if you feel you need to return an item. If you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason please reach out right away so that we may reach an amicable solution, I want you to be happy with and enjoy your purchase!


I enjoy finding vintage pieces and moving them along to new homes. I’m an easy going person and do this more as a hobby than a business, I like researching these old items to find their origins/history. If you want to discuss any items listed, tell me I’m way off base on my pricing, wrong on my description, or whatever convo me!
