A unique piece of art for using and enjoying
Each teddy mug is unique. Working from one of my photographs I paint the mugs in batches of about 6 so that there is consistency in the colours of the teddies. With the paint, I build layers of colour which creates texture on the mug and adds to their vibrancy. The paints are ceramic and once dry are baked in the oven to cure the paint which makes them dishwasher proof. The mugs we are using are beautifully thin bone china, just right for a lovely cup of tea or coffee. These teddies are all on our small Balmoral stock which gives you a small cup of tea or coffee and is perfect for our children’s range. To see more information and compare sizes link here.
About the teddy in the picture
I thought I would paint my own teddy who is now over 50 years old but she turned out to be rather battered. There are two teddies on this mug, slightly different and each a different colour. I started with teddies when I wanted to make my granddaughter a birth present that she could use or keep. I look back at the cup and laugh, it was one of my first and it’s not very good, I’ll do another one of these days. I think these are lovely for children and you can get the plate to go with them. They are perfect for customing. If you have an old teddy I could paint that for you on your mug if you take a photograph See customising a mug
Customise your teddies mug
Customise your teddy with a message, a name, a date of birth in all of one of 4 places. Either side of the handle, between the pictures or on the bottom of the mug. You will be given the option at checkout to add personalised messages. The messages are handwritten on to the mugs and you can choose capitals, mixed case or lower case. We will ask you to supply the spelling by email to ensure we don’t make any errors. See examples here
If you choose to order a plate as well we will customise at the same time, you only need one customise product.
Please see our shipping and packaging information. We review this regularly and will add in new options when we can. Shipping will be calculated when you enter your address.
Care for your mug
The painted mugs have a texture created by the build-up of the paint. They are dishwasher safe and fade safe. Do not use abrasive cloths or scourers on the painting and it can damage or remove the paint.
