Wouldn’t You Though?
Loving these mugs, with their dancing animals and a delicious gold print flower on each one.
I’m someone who has favourite mugs at home and will only drink from those (unless I absolutely have to…), and I’m busy deciding which one of these will be popped in the cupboard to join the ranks of the preferred.
They’re hand-glazed ceramic mugs – properly high-quality porcelain from Portugal – and the colours are just a little bit unusual, as are the images themselves.
The mugs are part of the Animaux collection from Avenida, a company based in Bath, and the design series Puddin’ Head. Lucky for us, you can get them a bit closer to home at FLY9 in Hitchin – which is where I ran across them.
That the names of each one are a little bit different appeals too – ‘Simius’ the monkey, ‘Lapin’ the hare, ‘Sciurus’ the squirrel, and so on.
Right now, I’m debating between the hare and the fox. Although the green one with the monkey might also be in the running. Which one would you choose?
