I want 2 different patterns! I saw this mug, which I think my impossible-to-buy-for parents would really like for their morning tea.

But my dad has to drink decaff . . . so they always have 2 different (but matching IYKWIM) mugs. Has anyone seen anything similar, but with multiple designs? Definitely needs to be bone/fine china.

I've got this as my work mug. It's bone china and lovely to drink from. It's a BIG mug though.

This type of thing?

I have to have tea from a bone china mug too!

I think that mug is from the 'Curios' range (if not then very similar) by Magpie

In which case there are lots of nearly matching designs

That is exactly it, Starman - and I think they even had both the beetle and bee mugs in the magazine feature I saw. Thank you so much smile

(I think I might also have to buy the octopus mug for me . . .)

For anyone else with older parents who might like that sort of thing - I'm now wavering towards this mug plus another from Kew Gardens (I know my DPs will like the fact that it's supporting a good cause, which is why I'd been looking at the NHmuseum shop previously).
