Disaster Designs By The Sea Octopus Tea Cup with Gift Box
By The Sea Octopus Tea Cup with Gift Box
Embrace the sea when you have a tea with this Octopus teacup by Disaster Designs.
This gorgeous cup has so many intricate pieces of detail painted into the design including the gold foil detailing on the base of the cup and the different tones of the octopus’s skin. Behind the blue octopus are faint, pastel yellow stripes on a white background and the handle of the cup contrasts to this, painted in the same blue as the octopus. Inside the teacup is a ceramic mint choc chip ice cream, waiting to be seen once you finish your drink. Round the inside rim of the mug are the lyrics ‘Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside! I do like to be beside the sea!’ in a dark blue, cursive font.
This cup comes presented in a stunning gift box with a pink lid which is decorated with a variety of different flavoured ice cream cones. The box itself has two beautiful illustration of octopuses, one on either side of the box. Their tentacles wrap round the side of the box, holding ice creams. All the way round the rim of the lid are the lyrics ‘Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside!’ in a black cursive font. Inside, the box is lined with a soft, white fabric to make sure that your cup is safe and secure.
This nautical inspired cup is the perfect addition to any home and makes a lovely birthday, Christmas or Mother’s Day gift for that special someone.
Measurements given are for the box, the measurements for the mug in cm are: 8.6(h) x 11.2(di) x 15.6(w)
The ice cream at the bottom of the cup measures 4.5cm in length.
