Toxic Teacup And Saucer - You Have Been Poisoned
Historically known as the "Black Widow," Mary Ann Cotton spooned arsenic into the teacups of three unsuspecting husbands and two lovers. Who, after all, would suspect a nurse? (And a quite handsome one at that!)
Cotton's affinity for insurance premiums exceeded any longings for a soulmate, and her true tale is as chilling as a cup of chamomile that sits for hours on a January day.
Upon several sips, the foreboding message "You have been poisoned." is visible through the amber brew, thereby raising eyebrows as to one's pending fate. An opulent European china pattern cannot distract from such grave concerns.
- Verdant, poison-ivy green design.

This cup is an absolute delight. Beautiful, heavy, solid, feels amazing in your hand and looks fantastic on the shelf, and, of course, the message is wickedly good fun. Highly recommended!

I LOVE this teacup set. It is large enough to use as coffee cups. I serve after dinner coffee and my friends get a laugh when they come to the bottom message. I really wish you had matching dessert plates so I can use them to serve a snack when someone just drops in for a visit.

The tea cup and saucer are absolutely beautiful and the message at the bottom never fails to entertain. A wonderful product shipped safely in a lovely box. I am eager to serve all of my guests. Thank you!

I have an annual get together at Halloween each year and love to decorate - these will be a fun addition to my Halloween table.They are lovely and wicked. They have a nice weight to them and are seemingly innocent.Can hardly wait till the girls see them.
