Polish Stoneware Choice of Pattern Set of Four 12 oz Handmade & Hand-Painted Mugs
Enjoy your daily cup of tea or coffee in some collector-worthy mugs! Each handmade piece in this set of four mugs features hand-painted designs against white clay, indigenous to the Boleslawiec region of Poland and renowned for its diamond-hard finish from a high firing process known as "vitrification." And each piece is signed by the artist so you actually own a one-of-a-kind design along with your java!

The patented formula glaze is nonporous so it doesn't retain oils, odors or flavors - just the rich flavor of your favorite beverage. Each mug also offers the special formulation from famous "white firing clay" that retains cold temperatures, so your just-out-of-the-fridge foods stay colder longer. Durable and chip-resistant, it's easy to clean, too - the nonstick glaze is dishwasher safe.

Wine Glass Types

Red Wine Glass: A red wine glass displays a fuller, rounder bowl than most glasses. This allows you to dip your nose into the glass to experience the wine's aroma. The bulbous setting of the glass allows the bouquet to aerate and develop while the longer stem provides the ability to swish the glass.

White Wine Glass: These glasses showcase more of a U-shape than red wine glasses. This allows a more concentrated aroma (whites are often not as pungent as reds) while also maintaining cool temperature.

Sparkling Wine Glass: The sparkling wine glass is most commonly known as a flute. This is because of its long, thin shape. This shaping helps the wine retain its carbonation and preserve flavoring.

Dessert Wine Glass: The dessert wine glass is the smallest type. Its short stem and glass are contrasted with a wide bouquet. Dessert wines have the highest concentration of alcohol, making their short stature a necessity. Finally, the wide bouquet allows the wine to aerate and develop properly overtime.
