Emma Bridgewater - Christmas Carols Set Of 2 Half Pint Mugs
Enjoy a hot chocolate on Christmas Eve with this pair of mugs from Emma Bridgewater, featuring the Christmas Carols design. Matthew Rice’s simple black and white designs illustrate traditional festive music, with accompanying typography.
One mug presents scenes from the town of Bethlehem, the biblical birthplace of Jesus. The town nestles into a hillside, with a large palm tree in silhouette. A few stars in the sky gather around one large star, the one followed by the wise men. Around the illustration is the wording: O little town of Bethlehem. On the reverse is the stable where the holy birth took place, with wise men and shepherds gathered together, seen from a distance. Above this scene are the words: Above thy deep & dreamless sleep the silent stars go by Inside the rim of the mug is another line from the festive hymn: How still we see thee lie.
The second mug features winged Angels playing musical instruments, amidst tiny stars. Around the base of the mug are the words: Angels from the realms of glory while inside the rim can be read: Wing your flight o’er all the Earth.
Both mugs are in the classic Emma Bridgewater tankard shape and embody the true spirit of Christmas. They are presented in a matching box.
