A handsome bone china mug with dozens of different cat breeds to enjoy with your coffee or tea. Cat Lovers, this mug is for you! For years we've carried lovely mugs from Dunoon Pottery featuring Highland Cows and Scottie Dogs, as well as Scottish Heather and Thistles, etc. Now we've finally gotten a design that features felines! This mug has 29 cats - counting the two inside the mug (30, if you count the one on the bottom!). Breeds/types featured: Abyssinian, Egyptian Mau, Maine Coon, British Longhair, Ginger, Tortoiseshell, Black & White, Burmese, Chinchilla, Burmilla, British Blue, Tonkinese, Balinese, Havana Brown, Himalayan, Rag Doll, and more. (No Scottish Fold!!??) Artist Richard Partis' detailed and diminutive renderings of cats capture the animals' wide-eyed stares and characteristic postures, along with expressive poofs of fur and curls of tail. Distinctive coats and patterns are depicted with loving precision and an appropriate note of playfulness. These are some handsome kitties!
A terrific gift for anyone that loves cats, made of bone china in the UK. Holds 11.8 oz. of coffee, tea or whatever you put in your mug and stands 3.5 inches tall and 3.5 inches in diameter. Heirloom quality, made by Dunoon Pottery, known for quality decorated drinking vessels - mug is really not the right word! Bone china is lighter weight and more durable than other ceramics. Please put a spoon in the mug before pouring in boiling water, or rinse the mug with warm water to bring the temperature up before adding your favorite hot beverage.

Dunoon is a thriving family business which began manufacturing the highest quality mugs in 1974 when the company was formed by two former executives of Staffordshire Potteries Ltd, Gordon Smith and Bill Harvey, both of whom were committed to the concept of producing quality ranges of stoneware mugs, filling a gap in the market with user friendly, beautifully designed original mugs. The first firing of the new kiln was of 72 mugs for displaying at the Highland Trade Fair in Scotland. The gamble paid off as orders started to flow in, skilled operatives were recruited and production began. Dunoon was soon selling mugs globally to quality retailers worldwide. In 1982 a new factory in Stone, Staffordshire, the heart of the ceramic industry was opened and under Gordon's management Dunoon developed a policy of working with numerous designers and artists to constantly update its ranges with new designs and unique mug shapes in both Stoneware and Fine Bone China. Dunoon uses slip casting to guarantee a fine, lightweight mug; a method still used today. Dunoon is very loyal to its Scottish roots producing ranges dedicated to Scottish themes and customers. The growth in popularity of speciality coffee and teas has led to increasing sales and demand for both finer quality and unusual mug design.
