Many people have a favorite mug in the cupboard and the idea about beginning anew with a uniform collection of coffee cups has the potential to take away the pleasure of this notion of personal possession. One of eight identical teacups can certainly not be recognized distinctively as one's own.
This is the charm of the 'Each a Cup' assortment by etc.etc. which comprises six mugs cast from the same mold, but every one with a distinguishably different handgrip. With this whimsical quirk, every member of a household can claim and keep track of his own unique drinking vessel.
But of course it isn't just the appearance of the peculiar 'Each a Cup' pieces that sets them apart, for the possessor of each mug grows to learn how to hold his ceramic teacup in his own comfortable way.
