The Emma Bridgewater Sampler Mug was part of the Sampler range, a popular pattern used for a range of other tableware, including jugs, plates and bowls.
The mug features many hearts and ‘Love’ written around the top rim, with hearts on the inside rim.
The Sampler Mug was red (there was a blue version, too) and was a popular present for Valentine’s Day, a great gift for partners and spouses.
The half-pint mug was made from English Earthenware.
Today the Sampler Mug is a collector’s item and is often sold secondhand for more than purchased.
If you’re after a Sampler mug, it’s worth periodically checking the discontinued mug range (link below) in case one comes up for sale.
