The diminutive Doris & Co espresso mug with inspiring quotes from great writers. Hold a good thought.

A gift for deep thinkers, strong coffee drinkers, those to be inspired or thanked. For budding writers, young would-be goods and old ne'erdowells.

The set of four - William Blake, T S Eliot, Philip Larkin and Raymond Carver - would make a good engagement, wedding gift, housewarming or birthday present.

These mugs are taken from an early industrial English 'coffee can' shape (1820's) and made in English creamware by hand in England.
