Rated 5 out of 5 by JoWa from Excellent quality This is the first time I've bought from Emma Bridgewater myself - after receiving a few mugs as gifts. I'm now addicted and starting my own collection! I was slightly apprehensive about what the quality of a seconds piece would be but I needn't have worried. The only difference on my mug is that the brush strokes are the tiniest bit streaky or the paint has 'cracked' during the sealing process on some of the Labradors - but this can only be seen if you hold the mug an inch away from your eye! Really good quality and wouldn't hesitate to order a seconds piece again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Robin from Seconds I bought a 'seconds' labrador dog mug. I should have bought a full price one, but thought I would save money and buy a 'second' as on the website it said that the imperfections were minor. However the imperfection on my mug is very obvious in that some of the writing on the inside is completely missing and does not look good at all. I had unfortuneately bought it as a present, and have since had to order another at full price, so a bit disappointed. Mind you, I love Bridegwater china and have collected it for years, so just a minor blip which I'll know not to repeat. It would help if the marks on 'seconds' were clearly described or shown in a picture so that it would be easier to make a decision on whether to buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsPicky from Lovely labs! When these went down to a fiver (and with the free p&p) in the recent sale, I decided it would be a no brainer not to get one! This will be a little memento for a dear friend, whose faithful companion went to the big doggie heaven in the sky recently. The normal high level of delivery (1 week) and securely packaged. Absoloutely no sign of any fault at all! Later in the evening that I ordered this, I made another EB order. I phoned EB the next day to see if they could consolidate the orders (and save themselves postage), but this wasn't poSsible. Both parcels arrived in the same parcelforce delivery!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sodgey from Black Lab Mug I wanted a mug with black Labradors on for my friend (as she has a black Labrador) and this mug fully delivers. It doesn't just have one black Labrador it has many which she says makes the drinking experience so much more enjoyable. She mainly uses for tea (milk 1 sugar) but sometimes will stretch to a hot chocolate (only on Sundays). This mug would suit anyone who likes looking at black labs and/or drinking hot drinks

Rated 1 out of 5 by cupcake30 from Most disappointing purchase to date I'm an avid fan of Emma Bridgewater and her many designs. I have purchased first and second quality and have had no problems or disappointments until now. I purchased this for my son but am so dissatisfied with the poor quality that Id be embarrassed to give it to him. Who wants a Labrador mug that has a picture facing you as you hold it that resembles nothing like a lab? Would not recommend to anyone as its a complete waste of money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StarrySkygazer from Black Labrador 1/2 pt Mug For a breed who's appearance differs greatly from dog to dog, you have captured the essence of the Black Lab perfectly on this lovely mug, right down to the shine on their coats and the much favoured red collar. Now I just have to order the Yellow Lab mug too as I have one black Lab who is rather pleased with himself (pictured) and one yellow Lab who appears to be sulking! Plus as an added bonus, the lower edge of the writing around the inside has become a humourous household guideline for the minimum height of tea needed to dunk those biccies!!
