Porcelein printed mug; Design taken from old London Transport poster by Alfred Leete; Great gift item.
This fabulous mug has a printed design on it taken from an old London Transport poster. Big enough for a good sized cuppa but not so big you could take a swim in it. A pleasure to drink from and a pleasure to look at.
About the artist
Alfred Leete - 1927
Alfred Leete was a well known comic illustrator, whose work included cartoons, postcards, book illustrations and posters. He was a prominent member of the London Sketch Cub with John Hassall. His most famous poster "Your Country Needs You" (1914) first appeared on the cover of the weekly magazine "London Opinion" before being adapted for use as a recruitment poster. It is probably the best know war poster of all time and has inspired many adaptations.
