Ceramics have been decorated for thousands of years, and this Panda Smile Mug demonstrates one of the playful techniques used to brighten up crockery in a contemporary way. Although cup and saucer set takes on a more child-friendly design, the delight of the adorable painted bear face can be appreciated by tea lovers of all ages.
The plate on which the coffee cup sits has been illustrated with big black patches for eyes, a simple nose and mouth and a even ears that project from the main oval shape. A standard tea cup, that reveals no character from the side, serves up a satisfied grin amidst licking lips that the drinker can see once his entire beverage has been consumed. When observed from above, the empty Panda Smile Mug adds endearing dimension to the furry creature's beaming snout.
