The Climbing Man
The stacked Climbing coffee cups are part of 'The Tiny Collection' that features tiny people getting up to tiny things across fine bone china mugs and stacked coffee cups.
The stacked cups feature a tiny man forever ascending and descending his never ending ladder. He can be placed at the top or stacked in such a way that every now and then he appears to have made some progress further down his ladder depending on where he is placed within the ladder.
This is an original illustration by Eleanor Stuart, hand screen-printed and decorated in Stoke-on-Trent onto four stacking fine bone china cups. The set comes in one of our bespoke embossed luxury gift boxes making it the perfect gift.
The cups are also available with a set of four hand decorated fine bone china saucers that each have a thin black rim painted around the edge.
The stacked cups, when stacked as four, are 24cm high.
