The designs were commissioned by Jamie Anderson, MD of Anderson Entertainment and son of Gerry Anderson, who was impressed by a design inspired by control panels seen in shows like Thunderbirds.

Each of the bone china mugs are hand finished at James Dean Pottery in Kent.

The mugs and coasters are being sold exclusively through Anderson Entertainment’s successful e-commerce site, the Gerry Anderson Store, which boasts an expanding list both of licensee-supplied product and new items developed and created by Anderson Entertainment. They will be available from the beginning of April.

The core market for the mugs is expected to be Gerry Anderson fans and gift buyers of all ages, along with lovers of stylish, unusual homeware. 

“I take my inspiration from mid-century design and modernist architecture and I grew up watching Gerry Anderson shows,’ says Gail Myerscough, “so bringing all these interests together in these designs has been a real pleasure for me.

“Anderson Entertainment has been a delight to work with and I’m looking forward to more collaborations in the near future.”

“Gail is a creative and versatile designer with a new and fresh way of looking at the Anderson classics,” notes Jamie Anderson, MD of Anderson Entertainment, “which at the same time captures the essence of their appeal. These, stylish, original and fun mugs and coasters are an integral part of our ongoing plans for an expanded offering from the Gerry Anderson Store to meet growing demand. It’s going to be a very busy 2021.”
