(Mug 1 with quaffing droplets due to non-removal of knuckle dusters as advised)
In 1679 a sordid bunch of low-life spivs out to turn a dishonest groat produced a range of tawdry geegaws commemorating the death of Sir Edmund Godfrey- like souvenir daggers with anti-social mottos inscribed on the blades, such as "To Revenge the Death of Sir E.B. Godfree"
It is in this proud spirit of enterprise that THE GODFREY PAPERS now bring to you our range of historically inaccurate gifts for discerning members of the carriage trade and of the 23 orders of the Canting Crew alike.
Quaff your coffee as Sir Edmund would have in the Coffee Man's in Swan's Yard !
These bespoke mugs, complete with improving quotations (but mostly threats) from the "Canting Speech" are available for the trifling sum of £7.50p each (inc. UK shipping) by the Royal Mail.
(For health & safety reasons, patrons are advised to remove any brass knuckles from their quaffing hands before attempting to quaff)
Mug 1 features the cover of "The Fanatiques Creed" & an improving quote.
Mug 2- "The Terror of Terrors"
Mug 3 - "The Monkey Duchess"
Mug 4 - "The Devil's Trumpet"
Mug 5 - "The Plague of Shadows"
Select your improving quote
(others available on request- within reason)
