Antique Blue and White Mug

Grindley Hotel Ware
3.5H x 3.75 x 4.75

I love a fancy European hotel breakfast—one of those lavish buffets in the old hotels with the cavernous dining rooms, the white tablecloths, the clinking of glasses and the rustling of the morning newspapers and the endless pastries and the coffee being constantly refreshed. Or at least I love to dream about those breakfasts. I have no idea whether those places still exist (or whether I'll ever get to go), but this mug has proven to be a great vehicle for the fantasy.
