Animal Mugs have been created by Steve Lapin with each original mug sculpted and hand thrown, and then molded and individually cast in porcelain, glazed and high-fired to 2360* F. Made in Virginia, you can trust that these mugs use only cadmium and lead-free glazes that have been developed to be variegated so that each mug is a collectable completely one-of-a-kind work of art. They hold 12-14 ounces and are dishwasher and microwave safe. This is a great gift for all occasions, for animal lovers, environmentalists, friends and family. All will enjoy drinking their favorite beverage from these practical, beautiful, lightweight and highly collectable mugs. Also visit our political mug site on the next tab DonkeyMugs.Org. Shipping charges are added to price at checkout. The more you purchase, the lower the charges per mug.
