Writers and Characters Mug
Absolutely the most stimulating (yet blessedly silent) breakfast companions with whom to share a cuppa: Charlotte Brontë and Mr. Rochester, Seamus Heaney and The Naturalist, Hilary Mantel and Anne Boleyn, J. R. R. Tolkien with Bilbo and Smaug, Agatha Christie with Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, and many more.
These heirloom quality bone china mugs are decorated with engaging illustrations depicting more than 46 famous writers and their fictional creations. Each time you pick up one of these mugs, you’ll find more to look at in the wonderfully detailed illustrations, from each figure’s clothing to symbolic items they hold. Additional pairings include Virginia Woolf and Orlando, George Orwell and Napoleon, Ben Okri and Abiku, Bernardine Evaristo and Amma Bonsu, Geoffrey Chaucer and the Wife of Bath, among many others.
Made in Scotland, in a factory on Loch Lomond, by a family business run by a grandmother, her daughter, and granddaughter. 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.
