‘I’ve got two large Spode Blue Ital­ian mugs, which I like very much in­deed. One’s got a chip in it and I love drink­ing from them. They’re par­tic­u­larly suit­able for tea. I would say those mugs have prob­a­bly done 20 years— I mean, they are se­nior mugs—so, if they were to be bro­ken, I would be dev­as­tated. The name it­self and the de­sign and colours are just so re­as­sur­ing; if you’re feel­ing up­set or un­cer­tain in this world, you just look at Spode and some­how it paci­fies you’ (COUN­TRY LIFE, Oc­to­ber 19, 2016)
