This humorous mug was designed by John Clappison for the Yorkshire pottery Hornsea as part of the "World's Best" series in the 1960s -1979.
This one is the "World's Best Dartsplayer".
The background colour is pink and depicts a man with an overflowing beer mug in one hand having thrown a dart.
His dog watches with a gloomy expression!
The base is marked "Hornsea England" and has the Hornsea double bird mark.
I think that you either love or hate these mugs (I love them) but there has been a resurgent interest in the designs of John Clappison.
