This year (2019) sees the 50th anniverary of Neil Armstrong's epic steps as the first Man on the Moon.  Let's not forget his co-astronauts, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins who were with him on that incredible journey.

It's nice to have something to celebrate such an occasion and Emma Bridgewater has produced a very colourful Moon Landing Half Pint Mug in honour of it.

So here it is and for £19.95, it could be yours or a gift for a loved one to sip their hot brew from.

This mug has lots of detail on it to devour Blast off to Emma Bridgewater's website for more information

There's lots of detail on it, including Armstrong's first words:  "One small step for man.  One giant leap for mankind."  I would love to be able to ask him how he came up with those words;  they are so profound.  

On the other side of the mug, you can see a design of Apollo taking off with the words "We have lift off!" and the date of the launch:  16th July 1969, in case you're wondering, and further round there's the date the craft landed down on the moon on 20th July. 

There's also the words on it "The planet seems to shrink when seen from space, our view was changed forever."

So an awful lot of thought has gone into the production and design of this mug, and there's a lot of information and detail to devour, plus a thought to muse over.  On the bottom of the mug, it says  "50 years on, when will we see the next moon walk?  Will a businessman fly his friends to Mars or was it all a dream?"

So do take a look for yourself and see what you think of this lovely half pint mug.  You can buy it from Emma Bridgewater's online site.  I've bought several things from there and the service has always been first class.

The mug has been made in Stoke-on-Trent from English Earthenware.
