Reminiscent of early advertising designs, the old-fashioned illustrations of early bicycles imbue your brew with a whiff of nostalgia! Dark brown, sepia-toned images of Penny Farthings, tricycles and pre-war push pedal shoppers endow this mug with a delightful sense of times gone by. Bicycle horns, bells and trouser clips decorate the handle.
These bike-decorated mugs hearken back to the era of Miss Marple and Agatha Christie, but modern pottery techniques mean they will last for years.
One of the Kate Mawdesley Bike designs from Dunoon.
Kate Mawdsley was born in Lancashire and now lives in a converted barn in East Anglia. Even in the nursery, Kate Mawdsley preferred to play with paper, pencils and paint rather than toys and she maintained her interest in art throughout her education. After completing her degree in fashion and textiles, Kate spent the first ten years of her career in the fashion industry. In the early 1990s, she began gradually to move into more illustrative work. Since then, her repertoire and collection have expanded each year and her work can now be seen on products ranging from Dunoon mugs to cross-stitch fabrics.
New for 2012, the 'Cairngorm' shape, named after the Scottish Mountains of the same name, is a larger version of the Lomond shape mugs. It has a gentle slope to the body and a curved handle. With a range of fabulous designs to choose from this 'oversized' mug is a must. With a capacity of 480ml they are both dishwasher and microwave safe, with the exception of any mugs with gold embellishment.
