Handle optional on this tall coarl and white hand thrown cearmic pottery tea mug. Love to stick your hand through the handle instead of using the handle? This mug will feel great in your hand! I threw these mugs on the pottery wheel, then trimmed, and pulled the handle before I fired them glaze them and fired them again! The pulled handle is smooth and comfortable in your hand. If you like your coffee to stay hot this style mug is for you. The smaller circumference of the mouth allows less heat to escape keeping your warm beverage warm longer than a wider mouth mug. Measures 5" x 3.5" Listing is for onemug for your favorite coffee, tea, eggnog, etc! Food safe, dishwasher safe, microwave safe! ALL MY GLAZES ARE LEAD FREE!
