Note: We’ve completely sold out of these. Zounds! You guys are mug nuts. I’ll be placing another order next week so look for another set sometime in June.
Alas, we haven’t resurrected four greats of 20th Century literature. But we have named a brand new set of Rabbit Room mugs after them. The good folks at Sunset Hill Stoneware have turned each one individually on a pottery wheel (sans Swayze) and finished them off with an official Rabbit Room logo. We’ve only got a dozen of each style (and six of each variety within that style) so if you want a matching set, you might want to act sooner rather than later.
Without further ado, meet the mugs:
“The Chesterton” (SOLD OUT) is a large, full bodied vessel that we think G.K. would have loved to sip a latte from (if he were the latte-sipping sort). We also suspect he’d fill it with tasty chili on cold winter nights and pair it with a grilled cheese sandwich as he reclined by the fire. Then he would say something ridiculously smart and funny and write three books about it.
The “O’Connor” (SOLD OUT) is one of the finest mugs to come out of the American South in the last century. It might look like a sweet, innocent, little cup that you’d find in the hands of a small town Georgia grandmother but rest assured, it’s much, much more. There’s a lot of depth and flavor here that shouldn’t be underestimated.
“The Professor” (SOLD OUT) is best enjoyed with a pouchful of Old Toby leaf and a pipe close at hand. It’s a perfectly acceptable vessel for use at any number of the following meals: Breakfast, Second Breakfast, Elevensies, Lunch, Tea, Dinner, or Supper. Also approved for snack time and usable as a blunt weapon in times of dire need. (Guaranteed not to leave a ring on your table.)
“Old Jack” (SOLD OUT) is a hearty pint cup that’s just as happy filled with hot cider as it is with a heady stout. We can’t prove it but we like to think that the “Old Jack” was a regular in the original Rabbit Room in Oxford. Aahh, the stories it could tell…
