Yum. The cups are large and deep, and the octopus ink is true blue. The handles are cool, a bit awkward to hold, but that's a small matter. In four sets, I found three glaze bumps and one tiny unglazed spot. No matter; these are special.

this teacup is so much fun! i ordered it online and did not expect the cup to be so large. you could practically eat a bowl of cereal out of it. it also has this great detail of a ship on the inside that you can't see from the online catolog picture.

I was so thrilled when I got this cup and saucer that I immediately ordered 12 salad plates and dinner plates. It was only when showing it to my mother that I noticed the chip on the rim of the cup. By now I had thrown out the packaging. I am in Sydney, so the thought of packaging it back up and returning it to the U.S. is a bit of a bore. My mother said they must have known as they always run their fingers around the rim to check for chips etc before they send them out but perhaps not? Anyway I am rather cross and wonder how much of the next shipment will be chipped? I did note the review of a previous buyer that some of his had chipped over a year but I hadn't expected it to arrive in that state already. I am not going to send it back as it is too much effort but I am not happy!
