Lavington Steam Fair mug

We have recently featured plaques from John Kyte’s Garden Rallies on these pages. But at one time the local football club also ran steam rallies up on the Elisha Field and today we feature another new arrival at the museum. It’s a commemorative mug from one of these shows.

Lavington Steam Fair Mug, possibly from the 1980s and now at Market Lavington Museum

Now there’s an attractive little mug that bears the appropriate legend. This is on a plaque applied to a basic mug. No doubt a single firing in the kiln could have contained some of these mugs and many others, identical except for the plaque.

It is a mug as can be seen in this view.

Yes, the mug has a handle

We do not have a date but imagine it may have been from the 1980s. Perhaps someone who helped organise these rallies could give us a more accurate idea – and maybe there are people who have photos of these events that they could share with us.
