Greek Gods and Goddesses Mug
These heirloom quality bone china mugs are decorated with twelve Greek gods and goddesses, along with their Roman names in italics and their areas of dominion. The Olympians are drawn in witty detail and are each depicted with their symbolic signifiers, including an owl, cornucopia, trident, harp, quiver, and more. Stars and planets are scattered in the background. The images are wonderful departure points for revisiting the myths, or introducing Hephaestus, Demeter, Dionysus, Aphrodite, Athena, Artemis, Apollo, Ares, Hera, Poseidon, Hermes, and Zeus to a young Hellenist. Each time you pick up these mugs, you’ll find more to look at in the wonderfully detailed illustrations.
Made in Scotland, in a factory on Loch Lomond, by a family business run by a grandmother, her daughter, and granddaughter. Yes, we love these mugs so much we went to the considerable trouble of importing them from the U.K. The company tells us, “Each mug is printed and decorated in the UK by our cheery, hardworking, skilled, and experienced staff.”
The company has produced bespoke bone china mugs for Orla Kiely, Paul Smith, Lulu Guiness, Vivienne Westwood, The Tate, The National Galleries, The National Trust and many schools, churches, galleries and other organizations.
