A flagship Middlesbrough museum has a new collection of merchandise on sale based on one of its key collections.

Visitors to the Dorman Museum can now enjoy the glorious work of 19th century design genius Christopher Dresser through a new range of souvenirs and gift items.

The Dorman is currently developing a major new gallery to house its stunning collection of decorative art material designed by Christopher Dresser.

Dresser’s influential and innovative work saw him acknowledged as the world’s first industrial designer and he also founded Middlesbrough’s renowned Linthorpe Pottery.

The newly-launched Christopher Dresser Collection features key rings, fridge magnets, coasters and ceramic mugs decorated with the Dresser’s unique designs.

The range means museum visitors can now take home a piece of design heritage adapted from Dresser’s colourful designs for tiles, wallpaper, fabrics and pottery, featuring humming birds, cornflowers, fox and hare, various floral devices and a knight and lady on horseback.

These colourful souvenirs would make unusual Christmas presents with something to suit all pockets, from £2.99 for coasters, magnets and key rings, to £7.99 for a decorative mug and just £9.99 for a mug and coaster in a presentation box.

For further information on the Christopher Dresser Collection and other gifts from the Dorman Museum Shop, call 01642 813781.
