Made here in the UK, this elegant fine bone china mug showcases Tim, with quite a few references to the Nile!
Tim made a video some years ago, where a vase mysteriously kept re-filling with water. See https://youtu.be/KPKzGagdvNc His phrase 'Water from the Nile' has passed into folklore on the Grand Illusions YouTube channel!
Our motion graphics designer David Chaudoir, the man who creates our titles, came up with such a lovely 'Water from the Nile' themed title sequence for our 2019 videos that we decided to create this mug as well, featuring the same design. It also shows Tim in his 'Suit of Arms'.
Inside the rim of the mug, if you hold it in your right hand, you will see the words COFFEE FROM THE NILE. Hold it in your left hand, i.e. with the mug the other way around, and the words inside the mug read TEA FROM THE NILE.
Made in Staffordshire, in the north of England, which has been a centre of ceramic production since the 18th century.
