Our poem puzzle mugs have a different verse of the poem in raised lettering on each side of the mug. This poem appears on a mug made in the 1800's by an English potter.
Stein Style Puzzle Mug
Stein Style puzzle mugs are available from Palmyra Traders at one of the events that they attend, listed here.
Puzzle mugs have appeared in many forms, in many countries over the centuries. They were popular with English potters and were made in the 1800's as a joke or trick mug; an appreciated novelty in pubs. Despite the holes in the body of the mug, there is a way to drink from the mug if the secret can be discovered!
Each mug is slightly different, using one of several different hole patterns. Each mug comes with a poem card and detailed instructions on how to drink from the puzzle mug, in a sealed envelope. Very entertaining when sprung on the unwary!
