Dickens's Dream Mug

£9.50

This 12 oz (350 ml)  ceramic mug features an image of Dickens's Dream by R.W. Buss.

Robert William Buss (1804-1875) was hired by Dickens's publishers, Chapman and Hall, to provide two illustrations for Pickwick after the original illustrator, Robert Seymour, committed suicide.

The publishers were disappointed with the illustrations provided by Buss and the job went to Hablot Browne. Buss, however, remained a lifelong admirer of Dickens and produced several paintings celebrating the author's work.
This possible watercolour  showing the author surrounded by the characters he created, was done after Dickens’ death in 1870. Buss himself did not live to complete the painting.
There is a link which includes a key to all of the characters in Dickens’s Dream.
