The picture shows the travel cup with the correct color and inscription. It arrived in a nice box and even with a little card describing that it was made in a monastery in Indiana. One thing that you cannot tell by looking at the picture is the weight. It is a heavy travel cup. This is because the outside is ceramic. I understand the product describes this, but feeling the cup really solidifies this. It appears to be quite solid and of sturdy construction. The top seats on the cup "just ok". This means that if you are interested in purchasing this to be a lightweight, vacuum sealed travel mug that can be dropped or knocked around and still survive, this might not be the product for you. I would purchase it for an individual that is fairly careful (for both the ceramic outside probably won't withstand a drop or 2, and the top doesn't "lock" in) and is ok with a heavier travel cup. Overall, it server the purpose I needed; I would definitely purchase one again and have looked into the manufacturer for future purchases. But that is me and what I needed; you might have different concerns.
