My favorite mug
Oct 13, 2022  |  By Leila D., Whitehorn, CA
Ever since I discovered these tankards in a cafe in San Francisco, they are my favorites. The shape and heft keep my morning cup of coffee warm - just how I like it! Thank you, Bennington Potters!

We love the Tankard Mug. We use them every morning for our coffee. They are sturdy and well made. The are easy to wash and heat up coffee in the microwave. We ordered two more to join our two so we can treat others to them.

Bought my first mug in 2008. Just dropped it. My replacement mug is better than the other. It seems glossier and it microwaves the drink hot, not the mug . It is the best ergonomic mug..It fits your hand just right and the lip on the rim works great, no drips. We plan to get more mugs and plates soon.

These are beautiful and a joy to hold. Perfectly sized. The bottom is unglazed and gently warms your other hand on a cold morning. Very comforting.

I searched and searched for a good solid mug for tea. Then I remembered Bennington! Of course, the people who know stoneware!! So happy with this mug. Color, weight, size, all perfect for my needs.

Love Them!

I love the mugs, their shape, their sturdy handles, and colors. I have three in different finishes to use for my coffee for variety. Hard to pick just one favorite finish!

We bought 4 of these mugs from Dean & DeLuca,, the food emporium that's now gone.

Absolutely love the mugs! Keeps heat and cold in due to small top opening.

Love hot coffee

I love the Tankard mug, I have one I got over 25 years ago when I worked at Crate&Barrel. It's the perfect size, great handle, smaller opening which helps keep my coffee hot!! Love it!

I have several of these mugs in my house in Massachusetts. Since I'm going to be spending more time in Colorado than Massachusetts now, caring for my mom, I just HAD to get 2 of these mugs for my Colorado house. The coffee stays warmer because of the smaller diameter top--and, as they say, that makes all the difference.

We bought these tankards in turquoise and gold, and I love how they look together! Great for pour-over coffee. Thank you for making beautiful pieces that are lead-free and safe.

Our tankard mugs are perfect for our home decor. They are a beautiful green and each one matches the other. Comfy to hold and keeps my coffee warm

Cheerful, Sturdy Mug
Feb 25, 2021  |  By S. A., Tewksbury, MA
Just recently, I bought a Morning Glory Yellow tankard mug along with a dessert plate to use with it. Beautiful and sturdy to use for my coffee! Had the same two from, long ago, in a retired, same pattern but in a cobalt blue on white. Loved it and still use it!

Classy and retro
Feb 20, 2021  |  By Marissa, Salem, OR
Bennington has a special place in my heart. I ended up with 24 of these in three colors (elements turquoise, green, and gold). The combo gives my kitchen a little funky flare, while definitely keeping it classy. These babies are really sturdy and hold a LOT of tea.

Only had two
Jan 29, 2021  |  By Carolyn H., Hotchkiss, CO
Added more so I could serve coffee to freinds
As always Bennington pottery has character and makes my statement on who I am

I love this style of mug. The handle is my favorite park. It's an easy mug to hold and to drink out of. I also have it in the white on white.

Perfectly sized and shaped
Jan 8, 2021  |  By Sarah B., Harbor Springs, MI
This mug is solid and sturdy, yet beautiful. I love that it's wider at the bottom and narrower at the top, keeping my tea nice and warm. It's easy to hold by the handle or to wrap my hand around the mug.

I have a tankard mug that was designed for Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in the late 80's which I still love to this day. I use it daily for my morning coffee. No chips or damage. Best mug ever!

These were a gift for my elderly parents. They love them! The handles are big enough so my dad can grasp the mug with confidence. The plus is that they are microwavable too.

We've been Bennington fans for a L-O-N-G time, so when we needed tankards there was only one place to go.... The final products are flawless. They feel good in your hand. They keep your beverage hot or cold longer than the average vessel. Liked them so much i returned to order more! Now I have a collection in progress...

The tavernware tankard was so impressive that we immediately ordered 2 more in morning glory yellow and cashmere. The cashmere is particularly great with cream. These two were also sent as gifts.

The color of the mugs were as I had hoped a caramel color. They are not heavy as some pottery can be. Very much enjoying the use of them and hope to order more to build a complete set of 10.

New Favorite

Excited to receive our new mugs in the mail. They're so beautiful and a pleasure to drink from. I love the stability of the design, which makes them just about impossible to tip over. I look forward to buying a couple more each year until we have eight

Just perfect!

Well balanced, good size, handle very comfortable. The caramel color is much paler than what it showed in the photo on line. Overall good style.

Excellent product and customer service!

I bought the mugs for my granddaughter who just got engaged. She said that she loves them and has used them exclusively since they arrived!
And kudos for your excellent customer service dept. who caught an error in the address. The mugs arrived to the correct address in a very timely manner.

The tankard mug has always been my family's favorite. Many moons ago, you carried a Cranberry / White glaze for a short period of time. Any chance that may come back to production? It's our favorite. Have a lovely day!

I had two of the tankard mugs purchased years ago at the Smithsonian. These are much heavier but equal in quality, if not better!

Still love them after years and years
Jun 4, 2019  |  By Deborah H., Rochester, NY
Bought four of these in the white-on-white glaze many, many years ago. I still love using them. They have been used on a daily basis for tea, and have gone through the dishwasher hundreds of times. Still perfect. They do get stained from the tea but a little bleach and water brings them back to white, as new.

I have always loved Bennington potters since I worked at the Burlington store in the 80's!! It's been a long time since I had a mug, bought two of the white on white tankard. The quality is excellent; solid, with that beautiful glaze. Makes a great cup of coffee! Well worth the price

Wonderful collection
Apr 28, 2019  |  By Suz, Greenwich, CT
We bought a set of the blue pattern at Ralph Lauren--plates, mugs, and bowls, but book a mug and found out RL doesn't carry them anymore. We were so glad to find the website and other merchandise. These are sturdy items and the mug we bought only broke from personal clumsiness.

I am pleased with my replacement tankard mug that I bought to replace the one I broke... Very slight difference in capacity, maybe an ounce. But I am sure that is b/c they are hand made. Love it.

Tavernware
Jan 25, 2019  |  By Audrey D. Selinsgrove, PA
The Tavernware dulls if washed in dishwasher.

FROM THE POTTERS: Thank you, Audrey! We were glad that we were able to be in touch with you to work on a solution to this problem. We have seen this a couple of times before with other customers and found that if you use a water softener, the salt in the softener can coat the matte glaze which causes it to dull down over time. We recommend using Barkeepers' friend to help bring back the luster of your piece!

This mug shape has become my husband's favorite for his morning coffee. He seeks it out, bypassing others. We started with two, now we're at four. Waiting for a grey tone or red for our mountain house.

I purchased four of the same mugs many years ago. I was thrilled that I could order four more recently that matched the older ones. The color matched perfectly. The only difference was the inside of the mug had the blue color.

My husband and I received 4 of these in blue agate as a wedding gift recently. They are both beautiful to look at on our open kitchen shelving and functional and enjoyable to use. The tapered shape is elegant and pleasant to hold in your hand when warm, the handle is perfect. My favorite mugs in the house, by far. Really a wonderful and memorable gift.
