Add some 19th century Industrial Revolution design to your tea or coffee break with the Mr Stephensons Rocket Mug & Coaster Set, including the Mr Stephenson's Rocket Enamel Mug and the matching Mr Stephenson's Rocket Coaster. The image on both the coaster and enamel mug is of a poster advertising the Museum of Science (now the Science Museum) in South Kensington, London, showing a stylised depiction of Robert Stephenson and his locomotive, Rocket, which was an exhibit at the Museum.
Built by Robert Stephenson & Co in Newcastle, the Rocket locomotive won the Rainhill Trials competition of 1829, which aimed to establish which was the most efficient locomotive for railway haulage. Artwork by Edward McKnight Kauffer (1890-1954).
The Mr Stephenson's Rocket Coaster measures 10 cm x 10 cm and has a cork underside.
The Mr Stephenson's Rocket Enamel Mug measures 8 cm x 8 cm and is perfect for home-use or taking on picnics or camping.
