You'll love this handsome well-appointed Scots guard holding a saltire on front and back on this oversized mug. On the side of the mug a cannon shoots out symbols of Scotland including a castle, a thistle, whisky bottle, Scottie dog, black face sheep and a puffin in flight. Real gold accents on his belt buckle and buttons, so please no microwave or dishwasher for this mug. The word Scotland in blue runs down the handle. Holds 16.9 oz. of coffee, tea or whatever you put in your mug and stands 5 inches tall and 3.5 inches in diameter at rim. Heirloom quality bone china, perfect for wedding presents, shower gifts and the holidays. Made by Dunoon Pottery, known for quality decorated drinking vessels - mug is really not the right word! Bone china mugs are lightweight and strong enough to resist chipping and breakage.
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.
