Here's an usual piece of Mauchline ware. It's a 3" tall egg timer with a transfer for Blackgang Chine in the Isle of Wight in the United Kingdom. The timer is particularly unusual with its horseshoe shaped top and bottom. Mauchline ware was made in Scotland with transfers of places in the U.K. and many far off places as well. Blackgang Chine in the southern tip of the Isle of Wight is know for the oldest amusement park in the U.K. which started in 1843! Blackgang Chine is a coastal ravine which is mostly destroyed by years of land slides in the unstable ground. But it remains a very lovely part of England and this is a very nice and unusual piece of Mauchline ware circa 1900.
