Boys in Blue

There was an inevitable attraction between me and this particular nursery ware mug.  Not because I've got  a thing about uniforms, or camp looking men - but because I have one of the original factory pattern sheets of this design painted by Truda Carter.  The pattern is from a series of "London Characters" designed in 1934, but this mug dates from about 1950 and was painted by Kathleen Riggs.  The pattern sheet can bee seen here http://www.robspoolepottery.co.uk/site_map.htm
