Rated 4 out of 5Â by Helen56 Gorgeous but not what I wanted
It's a beautiful mug and unlike the previous reviewer I don't think it's too big for my coffee. Sadly (my fault for not reading the description carefully enough) it's no good in the microwave, which is how I heat my milk. Oh well, I'll find a way round it as I love having a pretty mug for my coffee.
But yes, the box is a bit naff and mine was rather tatty - a sticker had clearly been removed from the front and the corners were scuffed. I love the mug itself though!

This has a charmingly pretty pattern of delicate flowers against a creamy-white background. The body of the mug is an unusual 'wavy octagon' shape, and it's much bigger than I'd expected. It holds 400 ml/13.5 fl oz when filled almost to the rim - too big for my usual slug of coffee but a perfect size for soup or a milky drink. The bone china is of excellent quality and it's dishwasher-safe (a big plus point!). It loses a star from me because the gold trim around the rim is unevenly applied and its cheap pink gift box is horrid.
