This charming hoopoe mug is part of our rather splendid Metamorphosis dining collection. Perfect for cup of something warm and comforting, or for a perfect break in a busy day.
The mug is made from fine bone china, a classic material for tea sets. It features an illustration of our delightful hoopoe. He’s dressed to the nines for afternoon tea – in waistcoat, frockcoat, cravat, top hat and bowed ribbons, he’s a perfect Victorian gentleman.
The hoopoe is one of the six original illustrated birds that make up our Metamorphosis range, designed to add something a little different with its combination of modern elegance and Victorian splendour. Choose just one of our characters, or mix and match the set for your own unique collection of beautiful cups.
This mug makes an ideal gift, and even comes with a smart gift box. The detailed illustration style and ornithological eccentricity makes it a great gift for a bird-lover, or for anyone with a bright imagination and a love of both silliness and sophistication. Why not give a matching plate to go with it?
Fine bone china. Made in England
