Scottish Thistle China Mug
This vibrant Scottish Thistle China mug will make a wonderful gift for yourself or a loved one. A set of these china mugs will add a touch of Scotland's colour and charm to any kitchen table. This bone china mug depicts a Scottish Thistle in the style of 9th century ancient Celtic manuscripts which would have been painted by monks onto vellum or calf skin. Legend has it that the thistle was adopted as the symbol of Scotland when an approaching Viking who had stepped on a thistle, cried out in agony. This alerted the sleeping Scottish warriors who duly defeated the invaders.
