Portmeirion Group has debuted the Wrendale Designs mug collection, introduced under its Royal Worcester brand.
The mug collection features 12 fine bone china mugs and four ceramic mug and coaster sets. The 11-ounce mugs each portray a hand drawn animal motif by artist Hannah Dale, inspired by and representing the quaint outdoor life in the Lincolnshire countryside.
“Hannah Dale’s fine art hand drawn animals delight young and old alike, and represent a wonderful collaboration for Royal Worcester,” said Wendy Bryan, corporate vp/Portmeirion Group USA. “Royal Worcester has a long heritage of presenting United Kingdom country life and these expressive animal illustrations are a departure from our classic looks, yet in keeping with our corporate roots. Rendered in fine bone china and easy to care for ceramic, the design-led mugs deliver a smile with every cuppa.”
Animal motifs in the mug collection include hare, duck, owl, hedgehog, robin, horse, squirrel, stag, cat, rabbit, pig and labrador. A surprise illustration is featured inside the mugs. The mugs are priced at $9.99. The mug and coaster sets are priced at $16.99 and feature dog, bird and donkey motifs.
