Order Your Rookwood Sesquicentennial Mug Today!

To celebrate Ludlow's Sesquicentennial (150th year as a city) in 2014, Ludlow is teaming up with well-known regional artist, Tom Gaither, and The Rookwood Pottery Company fromCincinnati to create a limited edition commemorative mug. Tom is a Ludlow native, best known for his pen & ink and watercolors depicting trains, riverboats, horses and buildings from all around the Midwest. "I've been a part of Ludlow for nearly half of the city's existence,” noted Tom. “This opportunity to design a ceramic mug with a company that has been such a large part of the area's art culture is very flattering. The permanence of Rookwood's work gives me a comforting feeling that 300 years from now my name will still be associated with my hometown." 

Founded in 1880 by Maria Longworth Nichols, The Rookwood Pottery Company is most well-known for their fireplaces, fountains and world-class art pottery. One needs to look no farther than the Cincinnati Art Museum to see the beautiful work birthed from their kilns. Someone you know has Rookwood in their home. 

The mug, priced at $29.95 each, is available for order online by clicking here.  These mugs will only be created in 2014, and after that they will be part of Ludlow history, so don't delay.
