Toxic Teacup - 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 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.

The cup is not as thin as I expected. But the effect of the final message has been the hit of several parties.

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.

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

Very sturdy for a teacup. Nice pattern. Love the humor.
