I designed this Espresso Cup as a surprising gift for your darling and loved ones, perfect for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and those rare unique occasions, when you want to show somebody with a truly happy smile on your face, for whom your heart beats.
The idea itself is not new, but unlike many similar designs, this cup does not unveil its inner secret already on first sight. Outside it has the round and rolling surface of a classical Espresso Cup which rests smoothly in your hand, seducing with its thin edge to slowly sip and enjoy the smell and taste of fresh coffee – while only nip by nip -- the cup's inner shape gently morphs and discloses its charming hidden heart. ... Your heart!
The inner volume of the cup is about 60 ml (2 oz) from top to bottom, just the right size for Espresso. I opted for these smaller dimensions over a regular coffee cup to keep it affordable for everybody in love and gratefulness, as an individually 3D-printed present. However, if you would like to hold this in your hands as a normal size coffee cup, please let me know.
Hope this is something of the kind you are looking for and that the dream that you dream while searching for something “with a heart” will come true!
P. S. Just for sure, this individually 3D-printed offering only includes the Espresso Cup. The gold plated saucer and milk jug, the Theresienthal rummer ("Römer" wine glass), the little silver case and the wienna "Franz Kutchera" baby grand (pinao) remain part of my small beloved collection of antique arts. I just love the marriage of +100 years old and modern work of arts. Hope you enjoy the photos I took. :-)
