Porcelain Sailor Mug
We are offering this large, portly mug in a limited edition. Manufactured by Lindner in Franconia, it resembles a model with a navy blue emblem used by the officers of the Russian Navy in the 1950s. The few originals have become sought after collector’s items. Without implying that they are indestructible, they are quite sturdy and thick-walled enough to keep a hot beverage hotter longer. And if a gust of wind should sweep through the sea of paper on your desk, the tapered shape of your mug will ensure that none of your beverage sloshes over the rim.
Lindner. What lasts is porcelain
The productivity of the Lindner porcelain factory in Küps, Upper Franconia, is remarkable: there is probably nothing that it has not already molded from porcelain. A glance around the Lindner halls immediately confirms this assumption. Since the company was founded in the late 1920s, all porcelain molds have been carefully stored there. The inventory has grown to over 30,000 porcelain molds. Many of them already have collector's value; some are in traditional design, others are timelessly modern, and all can be used again at any time if the customer wishes. Lindner is not impressed or even limited by categories. From thimbles and piggy banks to coffee and dinner services and bathroom accessories, the range includes everything imaginable - and is supplemented every year with new products.
This extensive product range has not changed Lindner's high quality standards. Where other manufacturers rely on automated processes in favor of high volumes, Lindner continues to build on traditional craftsmanship, inherent in the experience and know-how of generations. Instead of shortening or even combining the firing processes, the raw mass of kaolin, feldspar and quartz is given the time it needs to become high-quality porcelain in around 100 working steps. The first firing alone at 900 to 1,000 °C takes a good 20 hours. After the body has been glazed, it is fired a second time at 1,400 °C, again for several hours. Only then does a "white gold" come out of the kiln that actually deserves this name. Anyone who handles and stores it as carefully as Lindner does his work forms will enjoy it for a lifetime.
Not suitable for the dishwasher.
