DUE TO PROPOSITION 65, WE CAN NO LONGER OFFER DUNOON MUGS TO RESIDENTS OF CALIFORNIA.
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 specialty coffee and teas has led to increasing sales and demand for both finer quality and unusual mug design.
