Just so you know
Our Olney mugs come as a set of 2, in a ready-to-wrap box which makes it a perfect gift. Try pairing it with other items in the tea set like the sugar bowl, milk jug and teapot.
Stoneware, because it’s hardwearing, so you can put it in the dishwasher, and even the microwave, and not worry about it chipping easily. As fine as they are, these are pieces to live with day after day, not tiptoe around.
In the making
No two pieces in the Olney collection will be the same. That’s because we apply the light blue thistle motif by hand using carved wooden blocks. Pattern changes, varying shades, mottled colour, they’re what make Olney feel more charming and relaxed than a uniform, transferred design would.
A sense of history
There’s a whole lot of tradition behind Olney’s finish. From British spongeware – hand-stamped everyday pottery with its roots in the 18th century – to Chinese and Indian block printing. Just like both of these artisan processes, Olney’s got the same feeling of craft.
When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.
From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.
Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
Our Olney collection is microwave and dishwasher safe, but we recommend hand washing for longer life.
