Hanstan pottery was a collaboration between Hans Wright and Stan Burrage – hence Hanstan– that started in Victoria in 1962. The pottery continued to make domestic ware pottery well into the 1980s. All Hanstan pottery was hand-signed [in quite florrid, 70s style] on the base- as are these mugs.
Hanstan also made stoneware spice containers- with cork lids- I have featured some previously in the white/brown colourway. These mugs are quite unusual since not many were made in the orange/brown glaze. [My gen y friend said they look like avocados…and- you know- he’s right!]
These [rare] mugs are in excellent vintage condition, and are for sale: $AU45
