I love this mug! Recently I served tea in it to a friend with MS who has difficulty holding things in her hand who loved how easy it was to hold. She immediately ordered some for herself. Beautiful and useful mug

Recently purchased the Original Mug in white. Excellent quality mug brings back memories of fun childhood trip to Bennington store.

This is my new favorite mug! It's just great to hold and lovely to look at. One tiny caveat is that the handle gets hot when you microwave the mug, so be careful.


Gorgeous!

This is our first purchase from Bennington Potters, and we can't say enough about these gorgeous mugs. I know we'll have them for years to come.

We have some Bennington tankard mugs. Love them but they are too tall to fit under the portafilter on my Ranciliio espresso maker. I was looking for shorter mugs. These fit perfectly. They look too small to hold 12 ounces but they really do. I love the shape of them. Holding them is a bit tricky. Only one finger goes through the handle. You support the cup using the second and third fingers outside and below the handle. The cup gets very hot so it is not comfortable to hold on the bottom. It is not as comfortable to use, overall, as the Tankard mug. We use those for tea. We use the Original mugs exclusively for espresso with frothed milk. Love the mugs aesthetically but they are not as user-friendly as the Tankards.


Love this perfect mug!

This is definitely an East coast West coast mug! I owned these mugs in the 1960s and in the mid-1970s moved from the East coast to California. We sold much of our furniture and household goods before we moved including this mugs. many many times over the years I have regretted that sale. I never imagined that they were still being made, but still thought about them from time to time. Then several weeks ago I decided to look them up and low and behold they are still being made! I immediately ordered them and have fallen in love all over again! I love the hand feel and the texture. Generally, I like a mug a bit smaller so that the temperature stays hot longer. So I filled my Bennington mug halfway and pour again. So glad I refound these treasured throwbacks. They couldn't be more perfect. By the way, I have an average size hand and looping my middle finger through the handle while cupping the rest of the mug feels just perfect!
