Gondola Stuff: Mug

It happened again! I thought I had found and shared with you every gondola thing in my house. Then when I went to have a cup of tea, I came across this mug I hadn’t used in a while. It’s a bit worse for wear–notice that the ferro of the gondola is missing its tines, which represent its sestieri. But it still holds tea!

Yes, this is one of the tackier Venice tchotchkes. But it was a gift from a friend, which makes it special indeed.
