1 Pair of Dunoon Fine Bone China Mugs designed by Jane Bradshaw
(free shipping in the Continental USA)
A Dunoon mug can be a thoughtful gift for the loved ones in your life. Dunoon mugs make wonderful presents and they come in different sizes, shapes, and patterns.
Dunoon stoneware mugs are manufactured in Scotland, and the very popular Dunoon fine bone china mugs have been made in Staffordshire, England since the 1980s. Dunoon fine bone china is exquisitely translucent and light. Drinking from fine bone china, for some unknown reason, makes the tea or coffee more flavorful. Once you use one of these mugs you will not want to go back to your old ones. Every single mug has its own qualities. Some of the shapes the mugs come in are the Cotswold, the Dorset, and the Richmond. My favorite is the trumpet-shaped bone china cup.
The Dunoon manufacturing unit makes some very nice animal mugs for the animal lovers. Frisky dog and whimsical cats, farm animals such as horses, cows and pigs, and even insects mugs such as the butterflies, bees and lady bugs mugs, wildlife-type mugs with prints of deer and faun. Some of the prettier mugs are designed with images of birds such as swans, ducks, or nestlings. Some of the patterns are the Kashim and the Dunoon "How To"mugs. “How to Play Golf","How to Play Rugby", "How to Ride a Bike” are just a few of these patterns.
Floral designed mugs in both the stoneware and the fine bone china are superb and lifelike. Some flower styles are of daisies, roses and lilies and these are striking.
Holiday mugs celebrating Christmas are designed by well-known artists. Jane Brookshaw designed a Christmas mug for Dunoon called “Season’s Greetings” and it is in the Wessix shape. Susan Scullard has designed the Snowy English village mug which is now discontinued but still in demand. Designer Umberto Banchelli made a series of three designs called “Messina” of which one of the mugs has a sailing ship, a mythical sea god or merman blowing a triton shell, a scalloped oyster shell and constellations.
Each mug is styled in different patterns by different very, very talented artists, and the styles are not only the feminine, frilly styles that women admire, but there are also have many patterns that are great for the men such as “how to mugs“, sports, fishing, sailing, landmark and historical mugs. Some of the artists are Jane Brookshaw and Ruth Boden. Many of the mugs come in sets or collections such as the Chartwell or the Tissington. Emma Ball, a watercolor artist, has designed seaside themed mugs with colorful boats and seagulls.
Dunoon is a business master in the creation of these superior quality bone china cups and mugs. Both the Dunoon bone china and stoneware mugs are popular items all year round. There is certainly something special about drinking from a fine bone china mug.

Collecting vintage fishing rods and reels has turned into somewhat of a hobby for many collectors. For many people fishing remains to be one of their favorite past times. With the technical precision that goes into rods and reels and through using carbon fiber and other forms of strong, lightweight material, fishing has become much more advanced than ever before.
Fisherman Porcelain Mug
Looking back and seeing just how rods and reels have evolved through the years can be a humbling experience and also remind you of times past. Many collectors enjoy collecting these vintage rods and reels in order to proudly display them and their sturdiness and beauty.
When it comes to finding the best vintage fishing rods and reels there are plenty of online communities where you can find the very best items from around the world. Online auction sites such as eBay as well as many online retailers make it easy to get vintage fishing gear. There are a number of trusted companies which are prized among collectors for their history and quality. Some of the popular names include the following companies.
Bristol vintage fishing rods and fishing reels were created by the Horton Manufacturing company in Bristol Connecticut. Bristol was one of the first companies that created a telescopic steel rod and created many different trusted rods and reels throughout the early 1900’s and late 1800’s. Today Bristol rods and reels continue to be a popular collector’s item.
Wright & McGill vintage fishing rods and reels are also quite popular among collectors and fishermen alike. This company was established in the 1920’s and Wright and McGill were among the first in the world to change the original design of the fish hook.
The company began in Colorado in the late 1920’s as a company known for high quality fly tying and production. Wright & McGill advanced the fishing hook by giving it more penetrating power.
Modeled after an eagles claw, the Eagle Claw hook design is now used widely in many fishing and tackle applications. As a result the still existing company of Wright and McGill remains to be one of the more popular producers of fishing lures, rods, reels and equipment in the market today. Many collectors still seek out Wright and McGill fly Rods and Wright & McGill reels because of their extensive history in the business.
Keeping these vintage fishing companies in mind will help you if you are seeking to start a collection. These are among the most desirable names to start collecting and if you can get your hands on just some of these great vintage fishing poles or even some vintage fishing lures from these companies, you can start to build a great collection with a high resale value.
