Carlton Ware Walking Ware "Santa Claus" Mug

Stock No. 464 

A Carlton Ware / Lustre Pottery Walking Ware mug, designed by Roger Michell for CarltonWare and Lustre Pottery, modelled as Father Christmas (Santa Claus). Unusually for a Walking Ware item, it is entirely decorated in over-glaze red, black, white and gold. These were popular when they were made around forty years ago, but have since become one of the more difficult to find "Special" items of Walking Ware.
Condition is excellent with no damage or restoration.
Bears the semi-circular printed mark for Carlton Ware and Lustre Pottery 1980.

Dimensions :
height : 5 inches

(A similar example is illustrated in "Walking Ware A Collectors Guide" by Julia Michell on page 40 item no.39 in the design list see the "Walking Ware Book" link to the left of this entry.)
