From the Riverside range. this is the Ashley Fine Bone China Pike Mug. This range represents common fish that are found in the UK.
The inner rim has small graphics and there is explanatory text on the front face along with an image of the Pike. Ideal if you want a novelty mug for yourself or even as a gift for a friend or family member.
Text on the Pike mug reads:
The Pike, which may be up to five feet in length, is often referred to as the Lord of the Stream. Mating time is in the winter when the fish pair off and seek weedy backwaters where the eggs will be laid in the spring.
Pike are territorial fish and each defends its own area, they are most often found amongst the vegetation of slow moving or still waters.
The Pike is a predator and either live bait or artificial lures are used, winter is considered the best season.
