A taupe coloured mug from the Attention All Shipping range by Nick Munro featuring the word "Forties" from the Shipping Forecast and a humorous graphic. The text on the reverse says "Kettle boiling, mugs ready, biscuits imminent. Thirst rising, moderate becoming strong later. Veering between tea and coffee. Ah that's better."
"Attention All Shipping" are the first words of the Shipping Forecast, a weather report for the seas around the British Isles broadcast four times a day on national radio.
Designer Nick Munro has teamed up with the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) to create a range of homeware items featuring a slightly surreal take on the Shipping Forecast's unique language.
A minimum of £15,000 from the sale of Attention All Shipping products will be paid in support of the RNLI.
