Bone China Tea Mug
This mug is made from bone china in Stoke on Trent. The design is by Freight who are based in Lewes, East Sussex and are committed to using UK manufacturers for their wares.
The design is influenced by one of my favourite periods of Wedgwood manufacture, the ribbed moonstone and ravenstone vases and other product lines that were made by that company (also in Stoke on Trent) in the 1960s. The handle of the mug also references earlier handle design and manages to be classical without being overly ornate . . . . more Ionic than Corinthian!
The mugs are dishwasher safe. There is also a coffee cup that is in many ways just a smaller version of this tea mug. The ribbed sides hark back to Wedgwood production from the 1960s while the shape of the cup and handle predate that. Whether your morning cup of tea is a rushed mug of Yorkshire tea made in the cup itself with a tea bag or a more considered moment involving the brewing of loose leaf tea in a teapot and then ceremonially pouring the tea from pot to cup this breakfast cup will make the whole process more enjoyable.
