My wife loves anything written by Jane Austin so I figured I'd purchase this so she could boast to everyone that she has a Jane Austin mug (I'm sure among the Jane Austin elitist, that's a thing.) This mug proved to be a perfect little gift for the wife. Granted, I got her other things, but this was a little icing on the cake. It's chalked full of passages from Jane Austin novels and looks very vintage. It even has a portrait of Jane Austin so you can remind yourself what she looks like on those days you just can't remember. It's well crafted and feels very sturdy. It's about the middle of the run for size, as it holds 16oz (a coke can is 12 oz, to put that into perspective.) It's perfect for tea, coffee, hot chocolate, etc.
Heck, I could go on and on but let's face it, it's a freaking mug. If you like how it looks and you want a good, reliable, durable mug, then look no further! Worse case scenario, use it as a planter pot for miniature bamboo.
It’s strong, sturdy, and colorful and holds exactly 16 ounces when filled to the brim. It’s been through the dishwasher a number of times with no problem and it is microwave safe. I suspect it’s going to outlast me.
It has twelve Jane Austen quotes on it including the fistfight-starting, “A woman, especially if she has the misfortune of knowing anything, should conceal it as well as she can” and, of course, “One cannot have too large a party.”
As for the quality, I love this mug. Size wise is also top notch.
I highly recommend this for a gift - your librarian - the leader of your book group - a good teacher - any compulsive reader (even yourself.) In fact, I am adding it to my wish list before Christmas rolls around.
We all enjoyed the name of the company (Unemployed Philosophers Guild) as much as we did the mug!
