Louis Mulcahy Mugs x 2 (seconds)
2 x Beautiful vintage handmade white Louis Mulcahy large Tea/coffee Mugs, with a characteristic contemporary Louis Mulcahy blue/grey & Rose Pink double Fuschia slip design & a complementary rose red & blue/grey colored slip around the neck of each mug. Each Mugs dimensions are => height 13cm & Width 10cm. One of a number of Louis Mulcahy pottery I collected when I was younger but no longer want to keep it as I have no room for it now.
They are seconds I bought while on holidays in Co. Kerry from the Louis Mulcahy pottery on 2 separate trips there in the late 1990’s. Only used a few times over the years. This colour (white mug base with blue grey & rose fuchsias & rose red & blue/grey colored neck design) on theses mugs are no longer manufactured by Louis Mulcahy. Other than obviously seconds they are both in very good condition & very sturdy mugs to have in any kitchen.
Though one has had a a slight chip on the neck (see photos) since before the glazing process at the pottery but is still going strong & does not affect using it as it is well softened over time after the glaze was added to it and with time. It also has the Louis Mulcahy pottery stamp one dating 1996 & one 1999 (the yrs of my trips to the Louis Mulcahy Pottery in Kerry) on the bottom of these mugs.
