Ducati Corse Mug 981012811
This mug is actually made in Italy! There is no handle, and the graphics still seem to be layered over the glaze, although it is advertised to have the graphics glazed on for longevity. The capacity is much smaller than most American coffee mugs. I have a 2-cup Breitling French press and I can pour the contents into about 2.5-3 of these mugs. There’s no handle, although the tapered shape makes it easy to grip. The tapered shape also makes it difficult to dip cookies or pastries into the bottom of the cup, but a refill takes care of that.
The design is snazzy, although the motorcycle rider design could be improved with something like MotoGP or World Superbike graphics. It makes a perfect stocking stuffer or gift for a Ducati fan that likes to drink tea and/or coffee.
