I was impressed with the beauty of the mug, it was really smooth drinking out of, although I was a little disappointed that it doesn't keep my hot beverages hot as long as I would like. BUT, I do plan on getting the whole set because they are so pretty.
These mugs are much nicer than the photo shows. The quality and feel as you hold them is just wonderful. It never fails that my guests compliment me on these mugs. I have all 4, and have bought the set of 4 as a gift (which the recipient loved!) also.
