Enesco unveils new Beatrix Potter ‘Mug of the Year’ for 2020
Contemporary gift and homeware retailer, Enesco, is proud to present its second exclusive Mug of the Year, a new concept within the licensed Beatrix Potter collection.
Having launched in 2019 with none other than Peter Rabbit himself, the idea behind this offering is that on an annual basis, the featured character will change to showcase an original piece of artwork taken from author Beatrix Potter’s much-loved classic children’s tales, making the Mug of the Year a highly sought-after and super collectable piece with your customers.
The Mug of the Year for 2020 features the ever-popular character, Jemima Puddle-Duck. The bone china mug is rimmed with gold, with the same special feature highlighted throughout other elements of the design on the flowers surrounding Jemima.
On the inside rim of the mug are all the different characters from the Peter Rabbit collection. In this circle of literary characters, Jemima Puddle-Duck is presented in gold, and as more characters star on each Mug of the Year, their depictions on the inside of the mug will also change to gold, denoting that they have already featured on a previous edition.
In this new collectable initiative, the mug measures 9.5cm, and is presented in a full colour box with gold accents, and retails with an SRP of £15.00. The Mug of the Year along with other licensed Beatrix Potter gifts, homeware items and plushes are available to order from www.enesco.co.uk.
