On a cold, snowy winter's day, after a walk in the woods, it's time for a warming cup of hot chocolate.
Down from the shelf comes my biggest cup and saucer, Faux Bois, the most suitable for the job, n'est ce pas?
Having been established in 1851, Burleigh ware is still manufactured in Stoke-on-Trent, using an underglaze transfer printing process which has been in use for over 200 years. The transfers themselves are printed from a hand-engraved copper roller. Find out more about this process here.
Meanwhile, on with drinking the hot choc!
