Lot Essay

Mauchlineware takes its name from the town of Mauchline in Ayrshire. In the late 19th Century this small coastal town was home to a thriving industry producing souvenirs such as snuff boxes, egg cups and thread-winders. Usually made of sycamore, the principal feature of Mauchlineware objects is the photograph or pen and ink study.
