49th X Emily Sheppard Ceramic Coffee Cup
This holiday season, we've teamed up with local pottery artist Emily Sheppard to bring you a very limited run of these stunning handcrafted ceramic coffee cups. These cups are handmade in Vancouver and thoughtfully designed with Emily with coffee drinkers in mind. Each one is unique, no two are the same - features are:
- Speckled clay with a matte glazed in 49th's traditional mint colour and a raw stoneware base.
- Slight swell bottom to keep coffee hot and easy on the hands to hold.
- Painted stamp at the bottom of the cup with 49th logo X Emily's signature.
- Volume of 8-10oz.
Cups are dishwasher safe. However, it is recommended to hand wash to avoid chipping in the dishwasher. NOTE: each mug is hand crafted, one of a kind and may have slight differences.
