We love this bone china mug which has been designed and made by artisans in the historic English city of the Potters, Stoke-on-Trent. The aesthetic design was inspired by the beautiful and colourful Scandinavian city of Copenhagen, with its splashes of colour. It's high quality and excellent finish reflects traditional craftmanship and technique. A must have for every home wanting a piece of Britain.

Our artisans, Gillian and Mark’s adventure began in a small design studio in the early 80s in Stoke-on-Trent, UK, taking up commissions of various graphics, illustrations and textile designs. But working in a city, with its rich 400-year-old pottery heritage, soon inspired them to transform their ideas from paper to intricately designed finished bone china products.
Their work may reflect a contemporary design but they use traditional techniques to create every item.
They have been commissioned to work on various projects - designing and manufacturing bone china for many prestigious clients, including major department stores, large galleries and museums and retailers. What’s admirable about them is that they have kept the traditions of the English potteries alive despite the decline of the local industry in Stoke-On-Trent.
Our artisans are keeping alive the age-old skills and craftsmanship of the English Potteries. Based in the heart of Stoke, the bone china is made in the traditional way by pouring liquid clay into a mould by hand. Despite the difficult process, quality is of the essence; every single item is handcrafted and made with care.
Washing Bone China
Wash your bone china soon after use to reduce any possibility of staining from strong tea or coffee. Gentle hand washing is recommended without the use of scourers to avoid scratching surfaces.
Washing in Dishwashers
It is fine to wash our bone china in the dishwasher but please ensure you stick to these guidelines.
The bone china is dish washer friendly, however make sure it doesn’t touch any other items in the dishwasher as it may cause scratching or damage due to the vibration. Use the most delicate cycle and ensure the maximum temperature is 60ºC (140ºF) or below. Use mild and gentle detergents, not powders and tablets and introduce a rinse cycle to wash away any detergent film.
Storing Bone China
In order to avoid scratching or chipping, it is essential that you do not stack the bone china mugs directly one on top of other.
