Diameter 8 cm, height 8.5 cm

Porcelain printed mug; Design taken from old London Transport poster by Charles Paine; Great gift item.

This fabulous mug has a printed design on it taken from an old London Transport poster. Big enough for a good sized cuppa but not so big you could take a swim in it. A pleasure to drink from and a pleasure to look at.
