American Classic Mug
Oct 16, 2022  |  By Karen C., Bellingham, MA
I ordered these mugs a long time ago and recently broke one. That's the reason I ordered this one. In the past I also got these for my son , who loves them and the fact that they are lead free! That is important to us.

This is REALLY big!

I purchased the Classic mug to replace a D handle mug that I broke & is no longer available. It is enormous! Perfect for a cup of coffee with flavored syrups & an ocean of frothed milk. Love it!

Perfect size

I use my classic mugs for everything. Sturdy --they bounce when dropped which is perfect for my husband's disability. I give them for thank you gifts.

Trigger Mugs

I have had my Bennington Potters blue agate set for years. I use my trigger mugs frequently and they are the best coffees cup I've ever used. They are so easy to hold and they look great. My only complaint is that your Burlington store is not open anymore. I used to love to shop there.

Only Mug I Use!

I somehow managed to break the handle off my favorite mug and still continued to drink my tea from the damaged mug until this replacement arrived - it just wouldn't be tea in any other mug!

Fabulous

Best mug I have ever had; perfect size, shape, weight. Solid, I love the thickness. And the color is beautiful.

Absolutely beautiful mug. It is a nice combination of a substantial coffee mug with the thinner lip of a tea mug.

Perfect shape and size

I was very hesitant because, frankly these are expensive....WOW! I am so happy I did it. From the packaging/presentation/expediency to the wonderful 6 mugs I bought...My husband and I are so thrilled....so classic.

Timeless design and high quality

I recently bought 4 mugs and bakeware. The design is timeless, the quality outstanding.
After buying elsewhere for years, Bennington Pottery produces quality second to none.

I was really pleased with the size of the mug and it is just beautiful in the Black on Green! It is the largest mug I have, and is a great size for a nice cup of hot cocoa or nice large cup of coffee! It is solid and very well made!

Enjoying this new to me pattern. Really like the bamboo coaster/too

Well received presents!
Jan 8, 2021  |  By Kris, NYC, NY
I purchased a few of these mugs for family and colleagues and everyone has loved them. They arrived at my home first - so I got to see them before I wrapped them - they are really beautiful. I'm sure I will buy them again and expect to get one for myself very soon too! I got them with the bamboo coaster / covers and it was a cute set. I love BP! Never disappointed.

Timely delivery, classic mug is large enough to hold half the contents of a 6cup teapot or enough beef stew to make a meal.

The mug had not been completely glazed around the rim. After a quick phone call to ask about sending it back, we were told they were going to send us a new one. WOW. I love this company more everyday. U.S. product and they stand behind their workmanship. LOVE

I heard about bennington potters from Lead free Mama on Facebook. She recommended the mug being that it is lead free. I really like my mug and the color is beautiful. It is sturdy but not overly heavy.

The absolute BEST mug you can buy
Feb 4, 2020  |  By Bradley J D., Pawtucket, RI
I had originally purchased one of these mugs about 3 years ago as a Christmas present for my father-in-law. He was absolutely in love with it, and used it every day at the office. Unfortunately, one day I dropped it on the floor and only the handle snapped off. I felt so bad about making his favorite mug unusable. I purchased another one for him in January, and within 3 days of placing the order, the mug arrived. He was SO happy to have his mug back! It keeps his coffee warmer for longer than any other mugs he has ever had. Thank you so much to Bennington Pottery for making such a beautiful and quality product!

Great Mug, Not too heavy...

ordered several replacement pieces for our blue agate set which were shipped promptly and very well packaged. Were short one piece. A simple phone call and it was taken care of and received the next day. Outstanding company with great PEOPLE and quality products.

Been using Bennington Potteryware for 40+ years. New to me is the American Classic Mug 16oz in two colors: Blue Agate & Black on Green. Have used everyday since delivered. They are wonderful. Keeps coffee/ tea warm. Feels nice in the hands. Would buy again.

Very nice

I have a complete set in this pattern and they didn't offer these mugs until recently. Like everything I have gotten from Bennington, they are incredibly well made and absolutely beautiful.

I love my blue agate mugs. They are heavy and beautiful. I only purchased 2 but will order more. I also have a teapot with cup and saucer. The detail and beauty of these pieces are unmatched. I use them daily and they are the best quality. Thank you for such fantastic pieces.

Love the American Classic Mug

We like soups, stews, chili - and this mug is perfect. It holds a full serving. In addition, this marvelous mug is great for a generous serving of hot chocolate.

Worthy of a morning garden walk

I only wish these mugs also came in yellow but that's just me!

American Classic Mug
May 9, 2019  |  By Roberta B., Hancock, NH
I'm disappointed to say that I'm not thrilled with the two classic mugs I ordered. They feel clunky in the hand and are best suited for soups or ice cream. When used for a large cup of tea or coffee, they are heavy to hold and cool the liquid unless they are preheated. They are attractive and well made, but I just don't enjoy using them.
FROM THE POTTERS: Thank you for your comment and we are glad that we were able to connect with you and direct you to different mugs that may better suit your needs.

Loved the Store

The blue agate mugs were gifts but are my favorites and much loved by those who received the mugs. Loved your Bennington store.

An excellent mug
Oct 27, 2016  |  By Tyler W, Georgetown, KY
My wife got me this mug in blue agate as a Christmas gift a few years ago, along with some American made coffee. It is beautiful, has held up well and makes a nice big cup of coffee! It may be because it's made in America, or because my wife got it for me, but this cup is special to me and I would swear coffee tastes better out of it than any other mug I own.
