John Julian Classical Cup + Saucer - 4"

Article number: JOHN-10050
Availability: In stock (8)
This classically elegant, perfectly simple, exquisite handmade porcelain cup + saucer go together like tea and honey, coffee and cream, and hot chocolate and marshmallows. Can you tell we have perfectly cozy sips on the brain? The 4" size is divine for cafe au laits and cocoas alike (and we've been known to dish out a lunchtime portion of soup in them). The delicately tapered handle and body fits perfectly into the curve of a hand and the generous saucer is ideal for tucking a spoon or resting your madeleine.

Seriously durable and designed for everyday use, these pieces are fully finished with an extremely hard, high-gloss clear glaze. The almost luminous soft white color? That's the all-natural hue of the porcelain itself. It woke up like this. And then it made you coffee.

About John Julian: Hand thrown, fettled (a word we love—it's when a piece of porcelain is smooth finished by hand using a knife and a sponge before going into the kiln), glazed, and fired at exceptionally high temperatures, John Julian's simple, beautiful porcelain is lovingly made to last in a small workshop in Wiltshire, England. Designed by artist + sculptor Julian Sainsbury, these silhouettes recall the classic elegant-workmanlike shapes that have been gracing English kitchens and tables for hundreds of years. Contrary to popular belief, porcelain is not fussy. Go ahead and put it in the dishwasher or pop it in the microwave. Rejoice!
