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.

This teacup and saucer are quite the gag for just the right person, but in addition to that, they are really very nice pieces.

This product is awesome. It looks even better than the pictures. Such a fun gift! This was my first experience with Victorian Trading, but it will not be my last. The products are quality, they let me know when to expect arrivals, and their customer service is the best.

I saw this teacup on the Victorian Trading Co. Instagram and thought it was hilarious. My mom bought it for me as a birthday gift and I am in love with it. The cup and saucer are both beautiful and substantialit is definitely not as delicate as bone china. I've already had two cups of coffee in it and will have afternoon tea later.

I bought this one for my wife. She came home and saw it sitting on the kitchen counter. I heard her gasp and say It's beautiful! - then I heard the laugher as she read the bottom of the cup.Our church puts on an annual Ladies Tea I play the role of photographer and help her get it organized. I'm sure that she will have fun with this at next year's tea.It really is beautifully made - get one and have some fun with it.
