This regular size China Mug comes in its own Illustrated Gift Box with a wooden corked backed Coaster.

It is reproduced from one of McGill’s famous seaside postcards and depicts a rotund lady laying on the beach challenging her ill-equipped skinny husband to bury her in the sand.

The caption reads “Oh darling do bury me in the sand

 Donald Fraser Gould McGill was an English graphic artist whose name has become synonymous with a whole genre of saucy seaside postcards that were sold mostly in small shops in British coastal towns.

His cards feature an array of attractive young women, fat old ladies, drunken middle-aged men, honeymoon couples and vicars. He has been called 'the king of the saucy postcard', and his work is collected and appreciated for his artistic skill, its power of social observation and earthy sense of humour.
