The Cup made of stoneware from Eva Stæhr-Nielsen is a design icon which has been relaunched on the market. The beautiful cream white fits extremely well into most homes where (mid-century) design is important.


The cup from is a minimalistic classic teacup without a handle.

It matches perfectly the round shapes of Eva Stæhr-Nielsens teapot. And, even more importantly, the lack of handles makes it perfect for warming your hands on a cold day.


Even though the cup almost seems negligible in its cream white colour, its discreet band along the edge somehow makes it unique.

The glazing has been put on in order for you to spot the stoneware behind the glazing, and this kind of technique can create the discreet stripes which have also been copied along with the edge of the cup.
