Toxic Teacup And Saucer - You Have Been Poisoned
Historically renowned as the "Black Widow", Mary Ann Cotton spooned arsenic into the tea of three unsuspecting husbands and two lovers. Who, after all, would suspect a nurse? And a quite handsome one at that?
Her affinity for insurance premiums exceeded any longings for a soulmate.
Her true tale is as chilling as the 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 ones pending fate. An opulent European china pattern cannot distract from such grave concerns.
- Verdant, poison-ivy green design.
- White porcelain.

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.

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 the delicate features of the teacup and saucer and the beautifully written script in the teacup. I purchased a second one for my son, whom is a great admirer of such oddities and he too displays it with pride. Quite the surprise to all whom drink from it!!

This teacup is adorable, clever, and practical. It is not thin and fragile; it is study and well made. The flowers and gold gilding are beautiful and of course the message inside will be a surprise for all your guests with a good sense of humor. Use black tea rather than white or green so the message is disguised till the last sip.
