Description

This astonishing optical illusion mug is sure to surprise your guests... At first glance, Granny resembles an ancient cup, decorated with vintage floral patterns and sophisticated gold details. However, when you take a closer look, you can spot that the cup is actually just a simple image printed onto a white mug with a simplistic shape. Granny is the fusion of two types of cups: a modern cup and a cup from times gone by. This is a symbol of the link that unites the youth with the elderly, that we should all promote. Because, whether it's your parents, your grandparents or that little old lady you cross paths with on the street, our elders all have amazing stories and wonderful lessons to teach us. Each of the four cup models tells the story of its owner: Alessandra Casnellie (born 24 April 1927 in Positano, Italy), Filou Mazier (born 18 March 1939 in Poitiers, France), Stientje Veenstra (born on 12 November 1921 in Groningue, Holland) and Trudel Breitbauer (born on 19 July 1929 in Brauneck, Germany). The Granny mug is presented in a gift box, printed with the photo of the cup's owner, as well as their story (the characters are fictional, so any resemblance to real people is pure fluke!) ALESSANDRA CASNELLIE Born on 24 April 1927 Birthplace: Positano, Italy Married Gino in 1943 Children: Sergio, Valerio, Bella & Julia Occupation: Monzi Circus from the age of 16 Hobbies: cooking "After Valerio's fall from the trapeze, our circus life came to a sudden end. It took years for me to get used to no longer touring the world."
