Mugs by Ishrat Suhrwardy
What a lovely selection of mugs from Ishrat! These pieces are well-made and clearly the work of a master potter. These photos may not be of the exact mugs we have in stock, but the designs and colouring are very similar. Microwave and dishwasher safe, though hand wash recommended. Not oven safe.
Each mug design varies in size, but most are approximately 4 1/2" tall x 3 " diameter. Please email us if you would like exact dimensions of a specific design.
