"Coffee Mug" Unique in design and handcrafted with love. Blue Pottery is widely recognized as a traditional craft of Jaipur, though it is Turko-Persian in origin. The name ‘blue pottery’ comes from the eye-catching Cobalt blue dye used to color the pottery. It is one of many Eurasian types of blue and white pottery, and related in the shapes and decoration to Islamic Pottery and, more distantly, chines pottery. It is relatively unusual as a type of quality or luxury Indian Pottery, most Indian types being functional and though often highly decorated, relatively low prestige wares.
