This is a harder to find piece of Wedgwood ware.
It dates from 1976 and is made from black basalt.
It is a large loving cup or mug designed by Richard Guyatt for Wedgwood (as fully marked to the base and as photographed for your inspection). It dates to 1976 and is from a limited edition of only 500 produced worldwide.
The loving mug is a nice large size and made for display. It measures 5 inches in height. It has a diameter of 4 1/2 inches and from handle to handle is 9 inches.
This is a special commemorative piece made in 1976 to celebrate the Bicentenary of American Independence. It is certainly a fantastic piece of Wedgwood - made of the popular black basalt with an American golden eagle picked out in gold gilt - and with a profusion of raised white decorative items in slipware - all the white additions are complete and without losses. The eagle holds aloft the American flag - and all the stars representing the States are in the inside rim of the mug.
There are no damages to the loving cup - and you will certainly be very happy with it.
My one is number 199 from the limited edition - and comes complete with certificate and original box. The box is in fairly fine vintage condition (a few little marks from old sellotape here and there) - not pristine but quite acceptable - no nasty rips etc. The cup, of course, is pristine.
It will cost £24 to send to the States tracked and signed postage.
