Although this is a "costume drama", the strory of the central character is by turns breathtaking and heartbreaking. Although she was an aristocrat, because she was a woman of her times Georgina's rights were constricted -- and suffocated -- as was her happiness.
I came away with a feeling of having seen a beautiful bird frantically beating her wings against a gilded cage. "All my life" says the Duchess, "I've been fighting my way upstream".
From the Wedgwood Archive Collection, introduced in 2004, this pink cameo mug is -- dare I say it -- my favorite mug in the whole world.
Only problem is, I don't own one!
They are still available. but pricey. Still, I'm saving my shillings to buy one. I don't know if it's part of a full line or just the mug.
If there is a full line I am in trouble with a capital T, because I will want it all. Pink, cameo motif, beaux arts style garland and ribbon ... if I were a mug, I'd want to be this mug. It's regal but girly at the same time; the pink stops it from taking itself too seriously.
This is raving of a design-crazy person. I realize that, and I don't apologize. It's a vice, what can I say?
