I am a big fan of flat caps and I could not pass up the opportunity to purchase this amazing mug, even though I was then lumbered with quite a weighty object made rather bulky by masses of bubble wrap. The museum’s website describes it as “A china mug featuring an image of the colliery men waiting to go into a mass meeting during the Cambrian Combine Strike in 1910“. I can’t remember actually seeing the image at the museum, apart from on the mug, obviously, but the mug always reminds me of Cardiff when I look at it.
