Dunoon Sonata Blue Suffolk Shape Mug
Designed by Kathy Pickles, this stunning fine bone china mug from Dunoon is the perfect tea party mug. With its delicate floral design and combination of bold and pastel colours, this mug is both intriguing and beautiful. Blue flowers stand out against the crisp white background with gorgeous green stems climbing up the mug displaying encased buds before they bloom. The design continues up the handle of this mug, perfect for a birthday or Christmas gift for your loved one.
Kathy Pickles has been designing mugs for Dunoon since 1994, producing over one hundred and fifty designs. She has exhibited several times at the RHS Flower Show, always receiving a Gold Medal. In 1997 she designed the Chelsea Flower Show plate which commemorated the Golden Wedding Anniversary of Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip. Kathy’s work has been acquired by Kew Royal Botanical Gardens; and in 2010 her study of Mertensia maritime was one of the paintings of endangered species included in the 250th anniversary edition of Curtis’ Botanical Magazine.
Dunoon's Suffolk shaped mugs have delicate sweeping curves, a capacity of 310ml, and tend to be decorated with delicate imagery of flora and fauna. They are all dishwasher and microwave safe, with the exception of those featuring gold embellishment.

Established in Dunoon, Scotland, over 35 years ago, Dunoon are a market leader in fine bone china and stoneware mugs. Their shapes and designs are as sought-after around the world as they are here in the UK.
They source the majority of their clays from Cornwall, England, as it creates brilliant white and translucent Fine Bone China, as resilient as it is beautiful. Dunoon still use traditional skills and methods to forge their mugs: their craftsmen use a process known as ‘slip casting’, which uses liquid clay as opposed to machine-made, to achieve a finished mug that is fine to the touch, light to hold and a pleasure to use.
Equally as important as the physical craft of the mug is the aesthetic craft of the design. These are created by a talented ‘in-house’ design team and a wide portfolio of gifted freelance artists, many of whom have been associated with Dunoon for over 25 years. Further proof, if it was needed, that Dunoon understand the importance of consistency and longevity when it comes to producing top quality products.
The mugs are all finished with high quality glazes, and prints guarantee accurate colour reproduction, ensuring none of the incredible detail or rich shades are lost from the original and intended design.
Throughout every stage of the manufacturing process each one of their products is handled by a skilled craftsman, maintaining Dunoon's reputation of nearly 40 years of excellence in pottery making.
