According to Garland Withers
"Churchill, a British producer of tableware for more than 200 years, has thoughtfully created a pattern specifically for the celebration of the most food-focused of American family holidays--Thanksgiving--with a design transfer-printed from an early American copperplate engraving. The Thanksgiving Turkey 12-ounce mugs are meant to be integrated into other matching place setting arrangements in the same pattern. These handled mugs are perfect for coffee or cocoa; on a chilly autumn day, even a mug of soup can be a hand-warming treat."

"The turkey featured in the Churchill Thanksgiving Turkey design is highly detailed, as if from an antique natural history engraving; the bird stands in full-tailed display amid a cluster of ferns. The subtly fluted mugs sport borders which consist of equally detailed drawings of forest flora: blackberries, acorns, oak leaves, and simple wild rose blossoms. The color palette includes soft blues, reds, golds, and greens in the muted tones of a hand-tinted photograph. The Churchill Thanksgiving Turkey pattern offers a wide range of matching pieces such as basic 5-piece place settings, napkin rings, a cookie jar, a teapot, and a creamer and covered sugar bowl, as well as other individual setting pieces."

"Churchill earthenware is safe for use in the microwave and freezer; however, avoid rapid temperature changes by allowing dishes to make gradual transitions. Churchill pieces are also dishwasher safe; when hand washing, avoid abrasive cleansers and scourers. Each handled mug in this set of four measures 4-3/4 by 3-1/4 by 4 inches and has a 12-ounce capacity."
