It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Pride & Prejudice fan in possession of a liking for tea must be in want of a tea set. Perhaps this one will suffice?

This set includes...

One large, rosy pink teapot (egg-shaped), which reads: "In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." -Mr. Darcy, Jane Austen's PRIDE & PREJUDICE

Four vintage teacups and saucers, all of a soft white color with cream detailing. They bear the following quotes:

Cup 1 : “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” -Jane Austen

Cup 2: “I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.” -Jane Austen

Cup 3: “To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love.” -Jane Austen

Cup 4: “I must learn to be content with being happier than I deserve.” -Jane Austen

I painted the same rambling, red rose design upon all four cups and saucers, as well as around the edges of the quote on the tea pot. I also added Elizabeth and Darcy's silhouettes to the other side of the pot, facing away from each other in the tempestuous throes of pride, prejudice... and reluctant love.

If you are like me, and find that you can never re-read this book enough times, I think this set is for you. It's perfect for Jane Austen tea parties, Regency balls, book club meetings, and of course, for taking your tea while you settle down with your favorite book.

These are dishwasher and microwave safe, though I would recommend against scrubbing with anything too harsh, as such activities may shorten the lifespan of the art.

Some notes on international shipping... Since I have heard a willingness from some non-US residents to pay the outlandish postage required to ship a set this size and weight overseas, I have decided to offer it for sale to everyone. But because I don't know the rates in advance (and because I know they will be anywhere from $50-$150 through our dear, sweet Postal Service) I am setting a flat international rate of $150.00. I will refund the extra if you choose to take the risk, but please only do so if you are willing to pay anything up to that price. Thank you!

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.
