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 can't wait to give these as Christmas gifts!I would liked to see an option for a larger cup/drinking vessel sized for a man's hand. Or maybe a dessert set; or a his her set.

This teacup is even more exquisite in person. It is the perfect teacup for the upcoming Halloween season and a great addition to any teacup collector's collection. I am very pleased with this purchase!
