But I must say, I was surprised that they left out one of my favorite purveyors (of everything), Royal Copenhagen - who has been making an annual version of the little mug for decades.

Every year at Christmas, they release a new design, by a Danish artist, for the forthcoming year. The timing is of course impeccable , as they make for excellent gifts. Although I can't say that I'm enamoured with 2014's version.

According to their website, "The motif of the 2014 mug is graphically simple and at the same time dramatically expressive - twilight on the moor - the last rays of sunlight bathe the landscape in shaded beauty. With great intensity the artist Dag Samsund has created a unique mug for the Royal Copenhagen collection.".
Incidentally, I think 2013's mug is gorgeous.
