This unique Lodge style ceramic coffee mug celebrate the sporting and hunting dogs that are the constant and trusted companion of the outdoor enthusiast.  This design was first produced in 1937 featuring the work of international wildlife artist Richard E. Bishop. Mr. Bishop was the original artist for the Federal Duck Stamp program introduced in 1936.  A perfect gift for the outdoor enthusiast or sportsman. 

The black and white etching on the mug is a retriever sporting dog.

Born in Syracuse, New York in 1887, Richard E. Bishop was a noted painter, etcher, and writer.  He graduated from Cornell University and continued his studies at the Graphic Sketch Club in New York City. In 1924, his Canada Geese was awarded the Charles Lea Prize from the Philadelphia Print Club.

Bishop's paintings and prints may be found in the Honolulu Art Museum, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

An artist internationally known for his wildlife prints, Bishop illustrated the book Prairie Wings by Edgar Queeney and, in 1936, published Bishop's Birds. 
He was the original artist for the prestigious Federal Duck Stamp program at its inaugural in 1936.

The artist died in 1975 at the age of 87.
