Earl prefers to remain straight faced and solemn, indulging in only the most respectable of activities, such as playing chess, debating classical Greek literature, and snacking on petit fours and crumpets. He also deigns to hold beverages, since he sees the task as an elegant manner in which to interact with people. While he prefers to serve up a stout cup of Earl Grey and will totally judge you for anyting less refined, he is great for a variety of hot and cold beverages.
Earl was first thrown on the pottery wheel and his eyes and features were made and added by hand. He's made from cone 10 stoneware, so he's very durable and is even safe to use in the microwave and dishwasher.
Earl is about 4" tall and 3.5" wide and holds about 16 ounces. He is finished with a food-safe glaze in chocolate black. Earl is an Ug-Chug Mug, so he's stamped with the CLN and Ug-Chug logos and his year.
Earl is ready to ship and is carefully packaged in a gift box with tissue paper and shipped in a larger, sturdy shipping box, so he's very easy to give as a gift. Our packaging materials include packing paper and plenty of bubble wrap. His personality description is included in his packaging.
