I finally broke down and bought myself one.
I had been wanting one for quite a while so when I found a vintage one on ebay for a reasonable price,
I snatched it up.
I've had it for a few months now and I am so happy with my purchase.
I am also happy I didn't settle for a reproduction~the patina on this is gorgeous!
It also frees up space in our cabinets where I used to hold mugs.
I got all these mugs at Anthropologie, I think they have the best.
