Desperately wanted: 'Everything Stops for Tea' Whittard Mug

I would be so grateful if anyone had a lead as to where I could buy this mug, previously sold by Whittard of Chelsea.

It is designed by Anita Jeram and has a rabbit pouring a cup of tea for a hamster or gerbil, and the words 'everything stops for tea' inside the rim.

My mum bought it for my stepfather shortly before she died, and now it has got broken and he is distraught. I have looked on ebay and all over the web for a replacement - I know it won't be 'the one' but I think it would cheer him up a bit. I wondered if anyone might have seen one for sale in a local shop or might have one they want to sell via Gumtree or similar.

Thanks for any help...

Thank you for having a search for me Thandeka, it's really kind. The kitchenbee site links to Amazon, and then doesn't have most of the stock sadly, and the Australian site doesn't take UK orders (though I have emailed them to ask if I can order by phone and pay special shipping - I really am desperate!)

Have you tried Chinasearch? If they haven't got it you can register for a search and they will notify you if one comes in.
Hope that helps

Thanks Montifer, I didn't know about that site. I've registered it as a search, so fingers crossed...

I would be distraught too... now that I think of it, I broke the Chatsford teapot my mom brought from England, and I was distraught. And she is still around!

Good luck! love Hayley
