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 bought two of these and they are lovely. Cannot wait for my next tea party to use them and see the looks on my friends' faces!

While the interior message was enough for me to buy the cup, the product itself is a very durable, strong clay, so avoids the dainty fragility of other teacups, and also sports very pretty floral and gold decoration on the outside. It's a lovely cup that withstands daily use without losing its sense of humor at the bottom of every serving.
