I've always been partial to Nationwide's classy logo, and when I saw this mug years ago I grabbed it without hesitation and have used it for years. Though used, this cup is in great shape, with only light evidence of stirring in the bottom of the mug. There are also some very light abrasions on the outside due to many brushings against other mugs in the cupboard.
Pfaltzgraff's muted finish just adds to the warmth of the liquid inside. It almost demands you cup the mug in your palms rather than use the handle. If any mug can add to the taste of its contents (coffee, hot chocolate, or tea), this one certainly does!
