A love message right on the mug... How do I love thee... Let me count the ways. This mug is beautiful inside and out. Great gift item. Great Mother's Day gift. Beautiful pink peonies with a hand painted bird on a branch. This is a large footed mug with a beautiful large handle. We obtained this mug from an estate sale among many vintage ceramic dishware items. It has no cracks, chips or stains. It is light-weight considering the size of the mug.
