Dunoon – Glencoe Bone China Mug Zodaic Virgo The Virgin (Made in England)
August 23 – September 22
Dunoon fine bone china mugs are handcrafted in Staffordshire, England. They are produced to the highest quality using traditional methods which have been developed and refined over 3 family generations in the pottery industry.
This oversized mug, named after one of the greatest Glens in Scotland ‘Glencoe’, is one of our oldest shapes, yet remains one of our most striking. It has a great presence and our informative and educational patterns have remained the most popular designs on this shape. It has a flared top and a strong, comfortable handle so it feels very solid to hold.
‘Zodiacs’ are a collection by Jack Dadd of 12 wonderfully designed mugs, coloured and embellished with 22 carat gold describing the sign’s astrology, dates and meanings.
Virgo, The Virgin, also describes specific traits which a person born under the Virgo starsign may exhibit.
Jack worked with Gordon Smith to develop the very first Dunoon mug ranges – a working relationship which lasted many years. Jack designed the ever popular Richmond and Glencoe mug shapes. Still in the collection today are Jack’s Glencoe ‘Zodiac’ mugs.
