Mug of Wemyss ware
Add to album

This Wemyss ware mug was made in 1907 at Robert Heron & Sons' pottery at Kirkcaldy in Fife.

The mug is decorated with a religious text and hand-painted motifs influenced by Earlshall Castle in Fife.

Earlshall Castle was the home of R W R Mackenzie, a successful merchant. He held fairs in aid of local charities at the castle, and the Fife Pottery produced a series of Wemyss designs for sale at these fairs.
