"In vain I have struggled. It will not do."

Ah, Mr. Darcy's famous romantic opening proposal line to Elizabeth Bennet (until he ruins it a few moments later). I find this quote is easily adapted to ordinary situations in life. This is the kind of mug to put a smile on your face every time you use it.

What could be more felicitous than drinking your favorite beverage from such a mug?
This mug seems best suited for tea, since it is the Pride and Prejudice beverage of choice, but I'm sure Mr. Darcy would make no objection if it were filled with coffee or cocoa.

The mug is quality porcelain and newly purchased. The quote is handwritten with a ceramic pen, and heat cured, so it can withstand the hottest dishwasher and microwave, and quite possibly a lover's scorn.

4" high
3" opening

Each mug is handwritten, so text may vary slightly. And I do mean slightly.

sorry, no combine shipping, as it increases the risk of breakage.

Please note- This is my classic style of mug, as opposed to the traditional or modern style. If you purchased a mug in the past and want them to match, check your purchases to match the photos, as they have remained the same. Thanks!

Makes a great gift! I always include a complimentary hand-stamped tag and prettily wrap the mug. If sending this package as a gift and want to include a special message, please write what you want to say in the "note to seller" section during checkout. Please do not convo me this info, as I am sure to lose track of it. ♥
