This sublime Skye-shaped mug from Dunoon is the perfect canvas for the elegant ‘Cambridge Heart’ print. The design shows a garland of red and blue flowers entwined with green leaves that loop, joined together with a pretty blue bow. The decorative garland is set against a crisp white backdrop, of Dunoon’s fine bone china, with scattered dainty grey/silver hearts below. The rim of this large ornate teacup is decorated with a scalloped gold border with gold dots and a decorative star.
Finishing the piece off is a small matching design inside, along with the handle, which compliments the main body and ties the whole piece together. This is the perfect gift for anyone, superb for any tea party.
A Note From Dunoon:
Our customers expect a very fine, lightweight body, and in the case of the Skye mug the weight of the long sweeping handle can cause the mug to distort slightly when firing. All ceramics are prone to this, however the Skye mug is more susceptible as it has a large volume and supported by an elegant narrow foot.
We could minimise this by adding more weight to the body, but then the mug would be heavy and wouldn’t provide our customers with the translucency and lightweight finish, which they expect from a Dunoon mug.
Our Skye mugs are cast by hand and we try to minimise any leaning as best as we can during our manufacturing process. We do have a standard for inspection and selection purposes.
