Originally bred as hunting dogs in 14th century England, the springer spaniel would bound through the undergrowth causing the terrified game to "spring" into flight, for the awaiting hunters. Although it's hunting role has lessened over the passage of time, its energy most definitely has not, it is now more commonly found bounding in circles around the garden, or gnawing on that lovely new kitchen dining table you just invested in. But hey, you can't help but love them. This coffee mug captures the Springer in one of its few quieter moments. The soulful eyes stare out from the unique mustard and grey patterned background, seemingly asking, "Are you going to walk me now, or what?". "No" you reply, as you tuck into your freshly brewed cup of tea. Made from fine bone china, the design and manufacture of this coffee mug are of equally high quality. Whether purchased as a gift for yourself, or for that special springer spaniel loving friend, the mugs presentation in a beautiful gift box will definitely impress.
