This is a very unusual and I think rare Carlton Ware item dating to the late 1960s or early 1970s.
It is a nice large mug - it is 4 inches in height. The rim to the end of the large handle is 5 3/4 inches. Diameter at top is 4 inches. Diameter of base is just under 4 1/2 inches.
You will certainly get a large brew in here - if you wish to use it - but it is such an unusual piece of Carlton Ware - you might wish to pop it on display instead.
This is a very rare Carltonware mug which dates to the late 1960s - when there is an interest - almost a mania- for adding earlier Art Nouveau adverts onto all decorative items and fashions.
These Art Nouveau adverts were often seen on works by Portmeirion and Biba at this time as well.
This rare mug has Continental advertising images - on one side you have an advert for Eau de Botot - which is interestingly an old mouthwash (so perhaps appropriate for a mug!). The image is much more glamorous showing a beautiful lady contained within Art Nouveau patterns - and looking back to France of the 1900s.
The other side is German in origin - it is for Adler Apotheke, Bremen - a German chemist.
Again - the image shows Art Nouveau styles for the 1900s - but adapted for a more contemporary 20th-century taste.
I have never seen another example of this mug and I would imagine that it is very hard to find now - especially in such fine condition.
