PRODUCT DETAIL

kookaburra FINE CHINA MUG, 375ML CAPACITY, JEREMY BOOT

This is a beautiful fine bone china mug that comes in a equally stunning packaged box featuring one of Australia's iconic birds - the laughing Kookaburra. 

It makes the perfect gift for an overseas visitor or to send overseas. It also just makes a great present for those who love Australian birds.

Native to Australia, Kookaburra's are members of the kingfisher family of birds and are the largest member of this family. 

Their beaks grow to 10cm long.

They don't eat fish though - but rather a have a diet of snakes, lizards, small birds mice and insects.

They are best known in Australia for their beautiful song which sounds like a very loud laugh. What they are actually doing is marking their territory. 

In Australia they have been popularised by the well known children's song "Kookaburra Sits in an Old Gumtree"

Kookaburra sits in an old gum tree 

Merry, merry king of the bush is he

Laugh, Kookaburra Laugh

Kookaburra gay your life must be

 

This beautiful fine bone china cup comes in a gift box that features both the Kookaburra design as well as information about the artist, Jeremy Boot.
