Hand-Painted Enamel Tiger Mug, Purple
These handsome tiger mugs were painted by hand in Pakistan by the renowned artisans who create 'truck art'.
Truck art is a highly decorative art form in South Asia, where trucks are elaborately customised by their owners. The detailed designs are personalised to contain elements that remind the drivers of home when they are out on the road for months at a time. Kaleidoscopic patterns feature elaborate florals, exotic animals, and sometimes even depict historical scenes or poetic verses.
Collected on travels through Pakistan by a well-connected funky dude who’s business motto is ‘good shit, good prices’, these gorgeous pieces are a rare find! Each mug is beautifully unique.
Please be aware that due to their rustic nature, these pieces all have their own charming imperfections such as light scratches, chips and paint drips. Decorated using an oil-based paint, we cannot guarantee that these mugs are suitable for hot liquids. We like to use them for decoration, storage, or indeed to be admired as a work of art!
