Fine bone china mug printed and decorated by hand in Stoke on Trent. Part of a range featuring mythical creatures accompanied by quotes from English authors & poets.

ILLUSTRATION OF: Mischievous fairies stealing apples from an orchard. One is wrapped around the front and one had sneaked into the interior of the mug, waiting to drink your tea.

QUOTE/ INSPIRATION FROM: Fairies' Song, an extract from James Leigh Hunt's (1784-1859) translation of a Latin poem by Thomas Randolph (1605-1635). The quote reads: ‘We the Fairies blithe and antic, Of dimensions not gigantic,’ which is written around the illustration. More of the poem can be read from an attached label.

BLUE AND YELLOW COLOUR
The key colour is a beautiful purple-blue, which as light travels through bone china, appears to alter with the changing light.
