Golden Sailing Ship Mug


Fantasize about adventures on the high seas while drinking from this sailing ship mug handmade by Anja Bartels. Anja’s nautical surface designs are inspired by her childhood memories of growing up in a port city on the North Sea. Each wheel-thrown mug is decorated with sgraffito waves and 22 karat gold ships.
