This is a slightly less nerdy tea set than the other one, but still good for anyone who has a bit of Hobbit blood in their veins. I painted in in the spirit of home and comfort, good food, good ale, and good tea, so that as you pour a cuppa, you can thank your lucky stars that you are safe at home with your kettle, rather than off on some dangerous adventure.

The set contains one medium sized tea pot (olive green), four medium sized mugs (dark brown), and a milk/sugar set (mustard brown). The details are as follows:

The tea pot: This guy is not small, but neither is he huge. There is roughly enough room inside to fill all four cups 3/4ths of the way full. So, perfect to leave room for milk! Top and bottom of the pot bear the metallic gold, copper, and silver vines that accent all the pieces, and on one side I have painted the word "TEA" in hobbit LOTR font. On the opposite side is Bilbo's very characteristic quote,

"Bother burgling and everything to do with it! I wish I was back home in my nice hole by the fire, with the kettle just beginning to sing!" -Bilbo Baggins

All four cups are of medium size, dark, chocolatey brown, with metallic vines around the top, and furling banners on which the quotes are painted.

Cup 1: "I feel that as long as the Shire lies behind, safe and comfortable, I shall find wandering more bearable." -Frodo Baggins

Cup 2: “It's the job that's never started as takes longest to finish.” -Sam Gamgee

Cup 3: “There is one crumb of comfort… we can have breakfast while we wait.” -Merry Brandybuck

Cup 4: "The road goes on for ever; but I can't without a rest. It is high time for lunch." -Pippin Took

The milk and sugar set are a lovely mustard-brown, speckledy shade, and very rustic. Again, they bear the metallic vines, and I painted the words "MILK" and "SUGAR" on them in hobbit font.

The perfect set to drink from on a lovely evening reading indoors, or a morning out on your front porch as you smoke your pipe and wish your stolid, unadventuring neighbors a good morning. Just watch out for wizards who might wish to pull you along on a quest to fight dragons.

All of my work is done with heat-set ceramic paint, which MOSTLY does just fine in the dishwasher. I have recently found evidence that some surfaces are more resistant to the paint than others (namely the hand-thrown clay ones, and non-porous products like Corningware), so if you would like to ensure a long life for your mug, I would recommend hand washing it gently. However, from March 2013, all mugs for sale have been washed at least once in my own dishwasher, and found equal to its treatment.



My default shipping price is for FedEx ground, which I will use unless you tell me otherwise. (They tend to be more careful with mugs, and they deliver in 3-4 days.) If you'd rather a cheaper route, I can also ship US Postal Service, but note that they do take longer to deliver, and are sometimes unkind to fragile parcels. If you want your mug shipped this way, read on to the next paragraph...

When electing USPS shipping, please note at checkout which speed you want: Slowest or Fastest. The slowest rate usually ends up around $3 or $4 per mug (obviously much more for a tea set), and seems to take a good long time to arrive. The fastest rate averages at about $8 per mug, and takes a week or so. ***If you choose USPS, I will refund you the extra AFTER the mug ships.*** This way, I can give you an accurate reimbursement.


The US Postal Service has recently doubled its rates for international shipments, which has a very unfortunate impact on things like mugs bound for overseas destinations. As far as I can tell, prices stay reasonable (ish) as long as the package weighs less than 4lbs. Message me if you'd like a weight estimate before you buy.

Note: I have overpriced my international rates to compensate for fluctuations in box weight, so it is likely that you will receive a refund after your parcel ships. I apologize for the difficulty in guessing rates in advance. (This is especially true for tea sets.)
