Welcome to the Nottingham Castle Christmas Countdown, where each night, we’ll be sharing an item from the world-class collections in the Castle’s Galleries in the lead up to Christmas.

Welcome to day 13 of the Nottingham Castle Christmas Countdown Clock! Tonight, we’re sticking with the party theme and sharing a selection of Ale Mugs made from Nottingham salt-glazed stoneware. These mugs are intricately decorated with turned and incised lines, and some of them are personally inscribed. Not to mention they’re incredibly large!

Join us tomorrow as we continue to countdown to Christmas as part of the Nottingham Castle Christmas Countdown Clock.
