Shakespeare Characters Mug
The mug, elevated. These heirloom quality bone china mugs are decorated with humorous illustrations depicting more than 40 of the central characters from 14 of Shakespeare’s major plays. Each time you pick up these mugs, you’ll find more to look at in the wonderfully detailed illustrations: swords and daggers, masks and cauldrons, snakes, fairies, and phantoms, and much more.
Shakespeare’s works that are illustrated are Macbeth, As You Like It, Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Antony and Cleopatra, Othello, Much Ado About Nothing, Richard III, Hamlet, Henry IV Part One, The Tempest, Julius Caesar, Twelfth Night, and King Lear.
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.
Hand wash only. Suitable for use in a microwave.
