Emma Bridgewater Black Toast Writing Half Pint Mug
Black Toast Writing Half Pint Mug
The classic Emma Bridgewater tankard-style half pint mug, in cream, decorated with black lettering, hand drawn by Matthew Rice. As the writing on the outside and inside suggests, this mug is perfect for “TEA”, “COFFEE” or “HOT CHOCOLATE”! Naturally, this suggests an accompanying biscuit, so the words: “CAN I EAT ONE BISCUIT ... WHOOPS! I ATE THE PACKET” also on the mug, are entirely appropriate. With its all over writing decoration, it is the perfect mug to match the Writing Teapot.
Black Toast Range
Focusing on typography and orderly patterns created from lines of text, Black Toast is a simple but undeniably stylish range. The letters themselves are designed by Emma Bridgewater’s husband, Matthew Rice, who has had an interest in lettering since his school days. Combined with the black and light cream colour scheme, this range is both sophisticated and elegant. It works wonderfully with the Marmalade range from Emma Bridgewater.
Not suitable for Microwave use. Not Oven safe.
Dishwasher safe, however it is recommended to wash in lower temperature with liquid detergent to maintain appearance.
Made from English earthenware.
Emma Bridgewater’s earthenware pottery is made by hand in her factory in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire in England.
Emma Bridgewater is a brand that captures the imagination. It features iconic designs based on simple, uncomplicated elegance that are fresh and original, yet true classics as the same time.
Established in Stoke over 25 years ago, Emma's thirst for creative design has led to an expansion from her range of pottery to a huge variety of different products, all of which are intended for everyday use.
The company was born in 1985 when Emma, seeking a simple cup and saucer, found the options lacking. The choice seemed to be either much-too-formal fine bone china, or clunky earthenware. It was the need for a middle ground that propelled Emma to create her own range: practical and reliable pottery but with a colourful and stylish design worthy of any kitchen.
Working together with her husband, Matthew Rice, Emma Bridgewater has created a multitude of recognisable designs, from the Black Toast range to the Polka Dot and Starry Skies ranges, all of them as collectable as each other. These fashionable creations have earned her many enthusiasts, and we're proud to say that TemptationGifts is one of them!
