Tea Cup Tuesday - Santa's Around the World

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.

Then in 2001, The Russian Santa was release, the second one that I am missing from the set.

In 2002 The Norwegian Santa made an appearance

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?

  1. What a treasure they are.

  2. What a wonderful set! I am between the British & the American. They are so well done! Didn't know about the set. Thanks for sharing and Happy Chritsmas to you and your family!

  3. What a lovely set of Christmas mugs! I like the Pere Noel and the American best, I think although the Brisith one appeals to me too. I hope you can find the ones you don't have yet. Thanks so much for sharing these with us at Tea Time and A Happy Christmas to you and your loved ones.

    Christmas blessings,

  4. What a wonderful collection that is. My favorite would be Pere Noel, not only is he French, he has a basket by his side. Two of my favorite things!

  5. Oh this is a lovely series of Santas! Spode does design really beautiful china.
    Thank you for sharing this festive set with us.
    Merry Christmas!

  6. Oh, what a NICE set! I've never seen these Spode cups. Thanks for sharing them. Merry Christmas!
