Cures everything and more

      An old-time promotional give-away for farmers and their families from what looks like the Edwardian period. It was obviously a tea or coffee mug for kitchen use but over one hundred years or so the handle has been broken and lost but thankfully the main body of the mug has survived along with the rather primitive and naive transfer illustration.
      The transfer seems to have moved around and duplicated itself but of the illustrations of a pig, beef animal, horse and sheep our favourite is the sheep. What a haircut she sports.
      Think laterally and the product known as 'cattle spice' has alternative uses too, the kids don't want to go school or need more sweets well just offer them some of this magic liquid. They'll be out of the house before you know what has happened.
      It would probably make good bait for fishing too.
