A few years ago, I stumbled across a rather nice set of mugs made by Spode. Each Christmas, from 1998 until 2004, Spode released one mug featuring a Santa from a different Country.
Here they are in more detail –
In 1998 the First of the series was the British Santa
In 1999 Spode released the German Santa, which is one of the two I have missing and am still seeking.
In 2000 Bishop of Myra was released.
In 2003, The French Santa was released
And finally, in 2004 to complete the series, the American Santa was released.
I think of all the set that I currently have my favourite is the American Santa, because of the vibrant, festive colours. Which one is your favourite?
