We recently launched our Kit Kemp for Spode collection which includes ‘Alphabet Mugs’. Each mug is richly coloured with a graphic letter and illustrated with an array of fantastical creatures and curiosities – we are thrilled to share these with you!

Taking inspiration from the decorative letters of historic manuscripts, these beautiful mugs bring a contemporary twist with bold colours and joyful embellishments. Sometimes called an ‘initial cap’, you will often spot these decorative features at the start of a paragraph, consisting of large capital letters.

At a closer look, each scene is inspired by nature and boasts playful creatures and flora. Here is the letter ‘O’ which features a hand-painted drawing of a peeping brown owl. Colourful foliage blooms around the initial, finishing off this eye catching design.

These fine china mugs have a variety of colours from ruby red and sunny yellow, to grass green and deep sky blue. They are designed to be mixed and matched, bringing endless combinations to tell a story. Whether you’re enjoying a hot cup of tea, or styling a display on a shelf, our Alphabet Mugs are a work of art!

The letter ‘E’ is elegantly styled alongside a unique illustration of a mythical winged creature holding vibrant orange blooms. In true Spode style, an expertly crafted matching blue handle makes this mug a joy to hold.

The Alphabet Mug collection also took inspiration from our limited edition ABC painted letters by Mimi de Biarritz. Here they are on display at our Bergdorf Goodman showroom.

A trumpet-playing hare sits within a sophisticated letter ‘D’ on this beautiful red mug.

We hope you’ll enjoy discovering our new collection which features Kit’s appreciation of craft intertwined with her unique eye for detail and design. A fun yet beautiful mug that deserves to be showcased and enjoyed. Find our Alphabet Mugs for Spode at Shop Kit Kemp.
