KITCHENWARE, TABLEWARE and BATHROOM
(other than jugs, plates, dishes, & open bowls )

Many of these utilitarian items originate from the period 1942-45 when wartime restrictions were in force. Most are rare today, known only from surviving shape books.

Later Series 76
Cups & mugs      Various sizes and shapes
Most of the cups and mugs in the catalogue are from the Later Series (see list below), generally dating from 1942-45 when wartime restrictions were in force.
The image database contains just one Early Series example but this surviving fragment of a shape book shows that others were produced too. The 'saggar' referred to in the top left panel is a clay box used in the kiln during firing. 'Mr.Hawkins' is of course Reg Hawkins, one of Premier Pottery's principals and the firm's decorator. Perhaps an example of the Golf Mug might yet be found inside a trophy cabinet somewhere?
The same book also refers to a 'Tea Set' but has no sketch.
