I've had to bin this rather fine mug... as it is no-longer water tight..
One thing I liked about it is that the four main panels are not just copies of each other.
I see it is still available..... but given that (following the marriage of our households) we still have about four times the number of mugs we need.... I can't really justify replacing it......

Oh dear - it's like losing a friend!  How about keeping it on your desk to hold pens and pencils?

You are almost Yorkshire, Maggi. That's what I'd do as well. (they do a daff mug too!)

Scots/Yorkshire = 6 of one, half a  dozen of the other, Anne!  Plus there is the influence of Ian's  Yorkshire born and bred Mum!

A special snowdrop-art is the "Black Snowdrop Ring", created after wishes of the owner (probably also a galantopfile!) from the goldsmith  Neugebauer Torgau (see foto Neugebauer), who also will take part in our 1. springflowershow im march 2019 in Torgau!

one of the first pictures of snowdrops in Torgau - Saxony I found in the famous "Kreutterbuch" 1563 from Johann Kentmann. This coloured Aquarell-picture is one of more tha 600 plants, which this book contains. The aquarells are the reason, why there are not copies of this old herb-book, as othe books from Fuchs, Mathioli and others. In 1563 the snowdrops are called: "little white hornung (= february) flower. The big "white hornung flower" means Leucojum vernum, which is also part of the old book!
