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.

My sister came over for Christmas tea and she fell in love with these teacups. She said she would order some for her tea parties and get the teapot, sugar and creamer as well.

I got this for my tea party throwing sister, and she absolutely loved it! It's currently her favorite tea cup. It was so charming, I gave it to my tea party throwing auntie, as well, and it was a huge hit. It is a perfect blend of sophistication and humor that is so needed right now. I think it would be fun to throw murder mystery tea parties and have this as the cup to signify the victim. I plan on getting more!
