Martin Boyd tea and coffee mugs [sold]

Martin Boyd tea & coffee mugs
made in Australia c.1957

 Some more Martin Boyd pottery. These mugs are quite rare- whereas Boyd ramekins can still be had [subject of a couple of posts ago] it is much rarer to find mugs. The mugs have the Boyd trademark of the uncoloured rim separating the inner and outer glaze colour- which again are those classic 50s colours.

I don’t know the provenance of the mugs, as I do the ramekins, but they are in perfect condition and I suspect have never been used for the nefarious purpose for which they were made [would see tea and coffee stains after 50 years, surely?] All mugs have the usual ‘Martin Boyd’ signature in cursive script on the base.

For Boyd aficionados!  Or hipsters who value what they drink tea and coffee from.  For sale: $AUD125
