What is the Most Popular Mug Design?

With a fine tradition of hand-painted and  fine bone china mugs  we’ve always offered a constantly evolving selection, but have you ever wondered which mugs are the most popular? Spots, stripes, famous quotes, floral patterns, animals or characters?

It changes seasonally, our vintage rose design on fine bone china mug is always in the best sellers. If we are running animal designs, our senior buyer for ceramics, revealed that in all the companies she has worked for, the most popular animal mug designs have always included cats or dogs!

Whittard have always included a selection of animal-based designs to cater to this demand but our latest range combines fine china, muted colours, unusual textures and a range of farmyard animals, as well as the perennially popular cat and dog.

The artist was spotted selling unusual animal prints at an exhibition and intrigued by the distinctive result, our Senior Buyer Karla took a closer look and discovered that the artist was using potato prints. The artist was commissioned to create designs exclusively for Whittard and the resulting potato prints were translated into a range of fine bone china mugs.
