Mug: The Octopus With Arms Measuring Nine Fathoms, 1796 (Colored Inner & Handle)

High quality ceramic mug from our Sublime Sea Dwellers collection.
The OCTOPUS has been found of such a size that each arm measured nine fathoms in length.
Capt. Augustus Odysseus. Sth PACIFIC, 1796.
The artwork is inspired by the original explorers and scientific illustrations of the period. The extraordinary forms are due to the fact that the artists would often work back in Europe from quick notes and sketches made by the crew or scientists on the voyages.
The banner on the design is evocative of those used on antique maps and natural history illustrations.
In the background are seashells based on a French engraving from the early 1700s.
