Earlier this week, I clumsily broke a coffee mug (and if you knew just how much I love my coffee, you would have an inkling of how upsetting this was). Worse still, it was one of my all-time favorites – the classic Rabbit Mug from Emma Bridgewater. A quick trip to the company website for a replacement revealed that my cherished coffee mug is now discontinued! Of course, that’s when I went down the “rabbit hole” and discovered the many, many, many gorgeous new pieces including fab new Emma Bridgewater mugs.
If you are unfamiliar with the name, Emma Bridgewater creates “everyday kitchen china” that is anything but ordinary. Her pieces are as charming as a quintessential English country cottage. The pieces, from mugs and cups, to bowls, jugs, and plates all have a warmth and welcoming feel that I just adore.
I first discovered the company about a dozen years ago in the pages of English Home magazine. And I’ve watched the company ever since, as its offerings began to extend beyond simple daily pottery goods. Today, the company creates a huge variety of home essentials such as glass pieces, tins, picnicware, stationery, wallpaper, fabrics, as well as candles and home fragrances, all with the signature romantic cottage style that the name Emma Bridgewater has become synonymous with.
Although the expanded product line is alluring, I tried (really, I did) to stay focused on the mugs. But it’s easier said than done. And, as far as a replacement for my rabbit mug, there are almost 300 styles from which to choose. There are colorful flowers, landscapes, and all manner of adorable critters.
I am hard pressed to choose favorites, however, a few that I kept coming back to include the flower series, especially the 1/2 pint Iris Mug (shown above, retail $39) as well as the classic 1/2 pint Union Jack mug (pictured below, retail $39).
