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 this as a gift and I was so glad I did! She loved it so much that i ordered one for me and another for her! The quality is amazing and packaging is very nice. So worth the money!!! Very very happy with this item.

This is a beautiful, delicate cup and saucer that would make any tea party more elegant. The surprise of the message in the bottom of the cup makes it irresistible at my table! The reaction of the unsuspecting target makes it a favorite of others who were previously chosen to receive a little something extra with their tea.

A great addition to my cup collection, always a surprise and a laugh from guests. Cup is pretty enough to meld in with the others but wish design extended all around the cup, it only goes to the handles. But a good purchase, I'm happy.

I ordered four of these teacups because I am a Halloween maniac. These are great for after meal deception!They arrived today and one of the cups was broken. I am rating four stars due to this because the box only had a very small fragile sticker on the side.If the entire box is breakable, then fragile stickers should be in view on all parts of the box.I'm pending surgery and now have the hassle of sending it back for a replacement. Still however, they are a great little entertainment piece, and I do love VTC.linda
