Davenports owned the magazine Abracadabra at this point. This Abracadabra poster was used by Bill and Roy Davenport to advertise their show at the 1985 Edinburgh Fringe.
The cup and saucer came with an instruction booklet, the rear cover of which includes ‘Royal Kendall (sic) English Bone China, Hudson & Middleton (Longton) Ltd, Stoke-on-Trent. Copyright H&M(L) Ltd 1985. Note that this cup and saucer is a very close copy of the one that Gus Davenport put out, Ref. no. N1077.
Purchased by John Davenport in Denmark in 1985. Battery operated.
Originally commissioned by Richard Stupple, the painting was completed by Peter in 1985. A postcard of Richard Stupple is at the top. It just so happens that a postcard of Lewis Davenport is visible in the middle.
