John Julian Classical Espresso Cup + Saucer with Handle - 2 3/4"

Article number: JOHN-10054
Availability: In stock (8)
This classically elegant, perfectly simple, exquisite handmade porcelain espresso cup + saucer are the airiest possible iteration of the Italian cafe staple. You can practically feel the sprezzatura. The delicately tapered handle and body fits perfectly into the curve of a hand and the saucer is ideal for tucking a tiny spoon or resting a sugar lump.

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 a very strong 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!
