Item Description

Bruce Bairnsfather Crested Mug

A scarce WW1 Bruce Bairnsfather ware Old Bill Crested China Mug, holding the Crest of Southend-on-sea in Essex on one side and a Trench Scene Cartoon on the other with the caption, Coiffure in the trenches "Keep Yer'ead Still or ill'ave yer blinkin' Ear off" then the top border is decorated with Various Soldiers trench items such as Helmets & rations. then to the base there is the famous Old Bill cartoon soldier. i think this was made by Grimwades although it does not say this on the mug. i have personally not seen another piece of Bairnsfather ware with a town crest on it so it is possibly a very rare example.

Size, 8 cm tall 10 cm wide including handle.

Condition, in Excellent vintage condition, there is some minor losses to the decoration and some white patches yet again losses to the decoration although possibly done during manufacturing? there are some gilt losses to the rim but NO chips or cracks . please view the photos for a closer inspection. a fine object to add to the collection.


for UK buyers i accept Paypal, Personal Cheque or Postal Order

International Buyers i accept Paypal Only.

Sadly I am not in charge of the rise in postage prices, I try to charge the exact amount for sending the parcel and I do not charge for my materials,

The majority of the time I make a loss on postage to keep the prices down for the buyers. However I do not always get it right, so if for any reason you feel I have over charged on postage then please message me and i can refund any difference.
