A must have for any lover of the prairie wings. The perfect gift for the outdoor enthusiast and lover of the hunt. This amazing waterfowl art is canonized on this set of sturdy porcelain coffee mugs, first produced in 1932 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.

The etchings on each porcelain coffee mug feature a Quail, Pheasant, Ruffed Grouse, and Turkey. 

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.
