It is molded and hammered by artisans. Then polished into a beautiful mug.
The upper lip is also rounded to help make it spill proof.
The cup is made for cold drinks. It's not insulated, so it is not recommended for hot drinks. It is also not microwave or dishwasher safe. You'll want to hand wash this beauty.
It's a really nice cup to drink from. The handle is comfortable and the rounded lip is great for drinking. My favorite drink in this a is lavender lemonade. The best mug for a cold drink.
Check out the Moscow Mule Copper Mug HERE. It is also great for gifts.
