It's disappointing to see that the mugs are not made in China. We just broke a mug that we purchased more than 30 years ago and were replacing it. We like the grey and previous shape better than this new one.
Not only is it lovely to look at but the pottery holds the heat of coffee/tea really well. Good size and weight.
I just purchased 4 more of these mugs because I have had one for many years and it is just like new. They are sturdy, work well with any hot beverage and can go in the microwave and dishwasher. I am looking forward to many more years of using these mugs!
Been waiting for a long time to get one of these mugs used in the colonial taverns. So happy to be able to purchase one. So happy with the beautiful craft work that I am considering ordering another
really very nice, best in years
This is the best mug for beer, cider and even soda that I've ever owned. It keeps my beverage cold even without chilling the mug first.
