group of vintage month mugs produced by Hornsea Pottery

We’ve been sorting through a huge box of Hornsea Pottery that lives in our loft.

Amongst the collection are these fabulous love mugs.

There are 12 great designs – each corresponds to a month of the year and show a young couple in a characteristic scene from that month – bonfire night for November, rain showers for April etc etc.

They were designed by Kenneth Townsend for Hornsea Pottery in the 1970s.

We’re adding to the set gradually – an even bigger box might be required… or more shelves!!

You can find out more about Hornsea Love mugs on the official Kenneth Townsend website. Oh, and if you have any Hornsea pottery items, we founded a Hornsea Pottery Collectors group on Flickr that you can sign up to!
