Narrowing down favorites among the Harry Potter books is a tricky business, but if forced to do so, I might say that The Prisoner of Azkaban is in my top three. One of the many wonderful things about the third book in the series is the amount of humor Divination class provides the reader, most particularly in the way Harry and Ron react to Trelawney's instruction.
This is the famous Grim teacup, but with some additions. For one thing, I have painted Ron's comment around the outside of the cup, and for another, I've rimmed the saucer with a list of spells found throughout the Harry Potter books. On the inside of the cup, of course, I've added the fated tea leaves that cause Harry so much trouble before he discovers the truth about the shaggy black dog that is his godfather. On the whole, a winning combination, I think. :)
The teacup and saucer elegant and white with silver embellishments, and would fit in quite well in Professor Trelawney's stuffy tower classroom. They are small and dainty, and perfect for tea drinking.
For Potterheads and Seers.
Please note: I have painted four of this exact teacup and saucer with this design, but each one is slightly different from the others, due to their hand-painted nature. The one you purchase might look a tiny bit different from the one pictured.
All of my work is done with heat-set ceramic paint, and will do very well with dishwashers and the ordinary passage of time. I would, however, recommend against the use of strong abrasives.
