This set of 2 Scottish Thistle Window Mug from Royal Tara is a perfect for any lover of Scotland. Featuring a traditional Scottish Thistle in the center surrounded by a field of blue and bordered by black and gold Celtic knot patterns, this mug evokes the beauty of Scottish stained glass windows and the heritage of the Scots. The thistle is the national flower of Scotland and has been used to represent the country since the age of Vikings. Allegedly, an invading group of Viking raiders came ashore at night, but one stepped on a thistle, crying out, and alerting the sleeping Scottish troops to their position. The mug is made of new bone china and is highly durable yet refined and is dishwasher safe. Royal Tara specializes in high quality functional giftware and souvenirs and has been based in County Galway, Ireland for over 50 years. Capacity of one Cup: 325 ml (approx. 11 fl oz).
