Teacup #1: "Teazing, teazing man! I will think no more about him." -Jane Austen

If a mug popped into existence every time a woman thought this, I believe the entire earth would be covered in coffee mugs. Thank goodness Jane Austen immortalized the thought on paper, so we women would know that the teasing natures of men are nothing new, and therefore nothing to pull our hair out over.

For anyone who has known too many "teazing, teazing" men, this teacup is the perfect vessel for a calming draft. Drink your tea with poise, and move on! (Or merely wait for Mr. Darcy to propose again.)

Teacup #2: "Heaven forbid!--that would be the greatest misfortune of all!--to find a man agreeable whom one is determined to hate!--Do not wish me such an evil!." -Jane Austen

Lizzy always says it best, doesn't she?

This teacup is a tribute to the complicated relationships between men and women, especially as exemplified in the beloved story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy.

Perfect for the Austen addict, or for any girl who understands Elizabeth's dilemma only too well.

Both cups are small, and of a light toffee color, and I have painted the same rose vine pattern upon each. The saucers are identical--and quite interesting, I think--of a deep coffee color, with raised lighter-colored dots around the edge. In the center of each, I have painted the title of the work from which the quotes come: Pride & Prejudice.

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

Frequently asked questions about OpheliasGypsyCaravan

All my pieces are scavenged from various stores, and I hand paint each one, so the short answer is 'no.' But if you'd like a reproduction of a past design on a different mug, I can absolutely do that. Please read my custom mug listings to see which one fits your needs: https://www.etsy.com/listing/109863641/simple-custom-mug-you-choose-the-quote?ref=shop_home_feat_2 ; https://www.etsy.com/listing/90199344/complex-custom-mug-you-choose-the-quote?ref=shop_home_active_5
That all depends on what I can find locally. Like sold mugs, I can't often (if ever) reproduce an exact duplicate of a sold item, but sometimes I can find similar pieces to paint the same way. These sorts of custom projects usually take a long time, mostly because the actual finding of the pieces is a long and involved process, but if you're willing to wait a bit, please get in touch and we'll chat about options!
Usually, when I post a large collection of mugs, I do it all at once, and alert my Facebook followers and mailing list of their availability. Since time tends to be of the essence in those situations, I don't measure each cup's liquid volume, because that takes a lot of time. But if you'd like to know the size of any given mug, feel free to message me! In general, mugs I classify as "Small" tend to be 6-10 ounces, "Medium," 10-12 ounces, "Large," 14-16 ounces, and "Extra Large," 18 ounces and up.
Absolutely! I have many custom options in my shop, from simple, black-text only mugs, to intricate, complex artwork and mug specifications, to bowls and decorative platters. They can all be found in the MISCELLANY section of my shop. (Please read the descriptions on the listings before you place your order.)
This question is one I still cannot satisfactorily answer, even after eight years of experience with these paints. The paint brand, Pebeo, claims that they are dishwasher safe, which is true in some respects. I have some mugs that I have been washing in the dishwasher for years, that are still mostly just fine. And yet, I think the dishwasher in question and the mug itself both impact how well the paint will stand up to that sort of washing. (In some cases, I think the detergent coats the paint over time, and even preserves it.)

On the other hand, I have seen mugs whose owners only hand-wash sustain significant damage from scrubbing. If you want to hand wash, take care to scrub ONLY the inside of the mug, and never the artwork itself.
Unfortunately, my mugs are not really wholesale material. They take me so long to paint that I really must ask the full price I charge for them, and can't discount for the sake of wholesale.
