Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Any doubts were soon put to bed on delivery I ordered 4 seconds mugs from the lovely polka dot range and i was very anxious due to the seconds stigma, but as soon as the delivery arrived i was bowled over straight the way by how well these were packed! on opening them there was nothing wrong with any of them, and if there was i sure cant tell, i have asked allot of people who have come for tea at ours drinking in the fab mugs if they can find the "so called fault" but no one can, the amount of comments i get is fab & now im sure all i get are visitors coming just to drink tea out of these lovely pieces!! Will definitely be buying more, to add to my already growing collection,as these look fantastic on my mug tree! Just don't tell the hubby!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosycheeks5 from Love my new mugs I really love my new gorgeous mugs! I bought 4 for me and 1 for a small birthdya gift for a friend who loves her housemate's EB pieces. Although they are seconds I am pleased with them. I think the faults are the spacing of the polka dots and a few mottled dots like the pale blue dot in the image. Sadly when I purchased these online I noticed the form took a long time to tab between files when entering my card details. A few hours later I had a call from my bank to say my card had been used fraudulently. It was just one of these things and I didn't lose any money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Matthew from Not impressed Firstly I bought the item as a second so I was aware it would not be perfect. The site says words to the effect it will be structurally sound and useable etc but the defect may be with the decoration, or something similar. I've bought numerous seconds in the past though and could barely see the defect - things like a slightly off spot position or a small bubble on the handle. This item though as several black marks / scrapes on the white area across the mug - it's not suitable to give to a guest. As above I knew this was a second and it does comply with the description of a second, I suppose it's just a very poor second. It still functions as a spare mug, but then I could've got one of those for a pound in tesco! Lesson learnt.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ness from Quite disappointed I have quite afew emma bridgewater products and have never been disappointed but my order arrived today for one of these mugs to replace one that the other half broke :( and although I have had seconds before I have never received anything with so much of a blemish, this mug however, has a very obvious chip right on the rim where you drink, although it has been glazed over to disguise it you can still see it, kind of feels like I have been defeated by replacing one broken mug with another that is chipped!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by duncan1bet from My Spotty Mug I purchased two of these seconds mugs in the sale last week. I normally buy the flowers mugs but decided to go for these for a change as they were such a bargain. Even though they are seconds, as always with EB seconds, you would hardly notice. We are really enjoying them, they are so classic and pretty and go with and compliment all my tableware. Polka dot was not a pattern I have picked in the past but these mugs have made me now want to expand my polka dot collection and my girls and I cant wait to come up to Stoke in March to stock up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Polkadotty from Great purchase I was a little unsure regarding purchasing my seconds mugs after always buying first mugs but they arrived safely and securely packed and still just gorgeous! i had to look very hard for any imperfections which when found were very slight. Thank you so much to all the staff at Emma Bridgewater for a top quality service.
