Toxic Teacup - You Have Been Poisoned
Mary Ann Cotton spooned arsenic into the tea of her unsuspecting husbands. Who, after all, would suspect a nurse? And a quite handsome one at that?
Her third husband.
James Robinson threw her out after her urging that he obtain life insurance. Unfortunately, her fourth husband bore no such suspicions.
Place your order for our deceivingly beautiful teacup. Upon drinking most of your tea, the script "You have been poisoned." is visible and warns of your pending fate.
- Verdant, poison-ivy green design.
- White porcelain.

My Sister bought this for me for my birthday and I just love it. I also got the poison ring too.

I love the dark humor and mystery this cup and saucer set evokes. Beautiful workmanship and pattern. Can't wait for my next party to slip it in the mix!

A lovely tea cup and saucer which is handsomely gift boxed. I can't wait to give it to my daughter who not only has a tea cup collection, but will appreciate the irony as well.

When I saw this teacup in your catalog, I knew it was perfect for my daughter. I bought it for her as part of her birthday gift. She is a tea drinker with a macabre sense of humor. I know she is enjoying it and am so happy! I have been a Victorian Trading customer for decades and have passed that down to my two daughters. We love VTC!!!

I love this cup and saucer set! My mom got it for me for Christmas, and it's just perfect! At first glance, it's just stunning, and at second glance, it's HILARIOUS! It's rare that a gag gift is also beautiful and functional; I am delighted to have one of my own!
