It is said that in ancient times, when Aphrodite came ashore, she was greeted by a chariot driven by a flock of geese. If true, you can rest assured that it wasn't a peaceful welcome, for this feathered friend is renowned for being quite the noisiest fellow in the farmyard. Nowadays flocks of geese, rather than pulling chariots, are used as glorified burglar alarms, and woe betide any intruder who takes them on! It is therefore no surprise then that the noble domestic goose has been included by international designer Leslie Gerry in his fantastic new collection of animal and bird designed products. Here, on this elegant bone china mug, Leslie has portrayed the goose standing proud and watchful. The background design colour is a soft blue with yellow stripes which compliments the contrasting white and orange. A beautifully subtle design that you, or the intended recipient will love. Presented in a fashionable gift box.
