The first release in a new line of mugs featuring the artwork of acclaimed artist Graham Turner!
You've enjoyed his work in the Osprey 'Men at Arms' series, now you can enjoy Graham Turner's art each time you sip your favorite beverage. Our exclusive design features a reproduction of the painting 'Anticipation', capturing the moment of focus split seconds before horse and rider explode into a blur of adrenalin pumping action.....
The harpy crest is that of renowned jouster Sir John Astley, and the armour is based on English tomb effigies of the period. The reverse showcases a quote from Guillaume de Lorris' 'The Romance of the Rose' -
'Everyone in all places should do what he knows suits him best, for such conduct brings praise, esteem and gratitude....if you are a good horseman, you should spur your mount over hill and dale; if you know how to break lances, you can gain great esteem from doing so; and if you are graceful at arms, you will be ten times loved for that quality.
Mug is made of smooth molded ceramic composite in a glossy white finish. It has an 11 oz. capacity, and a large, easy grip curved handle for comfortable sipping. Fadeproof design, microwave and dishwasher safe.
Produced in cooperation with the artist, this exclusive design is available only from Historic Enterprises!
Limited quantities available.
