About this product

Enjoy the magnificent splendour and rich heritage of V&A's Refreshment Rooms with every dining experience. The V&A's The Cole Collection of tableware draws from the decorative detail of the world's first museum café, opened at the V&A in 1856. The collection takes its name from the Museum's founding director, Sir Henry Cole, who introduced the idea of creating captivating dining rooms to be enjoyed on a trip to this extraordinary museum. With this 2-piece coffee cup and saucer set you can refresh with a restoring brew, and marvel at the V&A Museum's fine art and design work. It takes inspiration from each of the three Refreshment Rooms to create a stunning piece, fit to grace any teatime. The repeating geometric triangles of the Morris Room adorn the mug, while the saucer features a similar triangular motif. Both pieces are elegantly finished in Dutch blue - a homage to the Poynter Room - while their white fine china construction's inspired by the Gamble Room - described as an expanse of colourful ceramic and glass. A luxurious pairing, this coffee cup and saucer set makes a wonderful gift for any admirer of art and design.
