Beautiful way to start my day
This is a beautiful color with extraordinary detail. It keeps my morning coffee very warm while I work on my papers daily crossword.
My daughter LOVED it!
This was a gift for my daughter who lives far away from me, so I havent seen the mug myself, but my daughter, who is a fan of Frida, loved it!
This Made A Beautiful Gift
I bought two of these originally for myself. My sister saw them and admired them, so I ordered two for her. They are truly heirloom quality items, to be cherished forever.

Popular Mugs and Cups
Multicolored Ceramic Mugs from Mexico (Set of 4), "Colors of Mexico"
The Contreras Family in Dolores Hidalgo, Mexico, uses traditional Spanish majolica techniques to create beautiful Talavera-style tableware. This colorful set of four mugs is crafted and painted by hand with exuberant floral motifs. The lead-free mugs make a cheerful addition to any breakfast table.
Majolica Ceramic Blue Floral Cup and Saucer, "Puebla Kaleidoscope"
A flower blossoms with scintillating beauty, spreading its petals throughout the ivory background of this cup and saucer. Like a kaleidoscope in blue undertones, the magnificent design is by Pedro Tecayehuatl, expert in the legendary art of Talavera-style ceramics from Puebla. Featuring black contours, the cobalt blue cup and saucer are crafted by hand.
Talavera is a distinctive art form brought to Mexico by artisans from Talavera de la Reina, Spain. The ceramic artisans of Puebla, Mexico then incorporated Chinese designs, thus creating the blue and oyster-white patterns traditionally associated with Talavera Poblana. Today there are also more "contemporary" designs that include yellow, green, orange, mauve, black and red.
National and international conventions require that a rigorous procedure be followed in the elaboration of authentic Talavera-style ceramics. Each individual piece will be slightly different, and therefore a unique work of art.
