‘Charles Lamb once told Coleridge he was especially fond of books containing traces of buttered muffins’
The popular Slightly Foxed mug is made by Hartley Greens & Co., a small firm with a distinguished history which, under its original name of The Leeds Pottery, has been producing its distinctive creamware since 1756.
Our mug is in this traditional creamware – a type of earthenware made from white Cornish clay combined with a translucent glaze to produce a delicious pale cream colour. It carries an appropriately bookish quotation – hand-lettered by the distinguished calligrapher and artist, Susie Leiper – and our endpiece of the little fox in SF’s signature dark grey. We love it and it’s certainly given tone to our office coffee-breaks. We hope you’ll love it too.
