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.

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!

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

Love this teacup. I've tried to purchase it several times, but it was out of stock. Finally managed to purchase it. It is so beautiful. Very fine china. The story is so interesting.

what an elegant little cup. extremely dainty, swirled with florets and very presentable. however, if you want to keep the hidden message anonymous to the last drop, you might choose to steep a black leaf blend! i really liked how quickly i received the cup. and how carefully it was packed. the cup and saucer were firmly secured in a lovely gift box. my tea drinking friend will cherish this on her birthday, especially with it's wry dark humour!

I bought this for my best friend, who is going through a tough time right now. It will make her laufgh every time she reaches the bottom of the cup. It came quickly, it was beautifully packaged and just as it looked in the online catalog.
