In my experience, tea-drinking in the U.S. is not as evolved or habitual a pastime as it is in the U.K., but our newest slogan is about change, isn’t it? Although mobility is a reality of our modern lifestyle, you might be looking to upgrade from this handy portable beverage tumbler to something a bit more fancy. This is a Limited Edition, who previously brought us the Trample and Scrum pillows, are here to help you be more like what Drake was talking about on the MTV VMAs. The California posse has been promised a sample for review, so we will post an update when we are suitably fancy with pinky pronation…
This is not a plastic crap cup. This is a limited edition. It is also a “Demitasse cup and saucer set made from Staffordshire Bone China”. The tea set comes in a handsome collector’s box with an A6 Fine Art Print (from this design, though bearing no relation to the Gary Numan song of similar name) and a certificate of authenticity.
The In the Park Tea (or Coffee) Set was produced in Stoke-on-Trent, England for This Is Limited Edition. Only 250 sets of this design will be made available, with a price of ~$60 USD reflecting its limited nature. Set up all your favorite dollies, and prepare to serve some tea. The set is currently available at Burgerplex here and at ClickforArt here.
Elektrodrop is a “creative collective of designers, artists, fashion, music and lifestyle enthusiasts trying to get by in this crazy world.” Following the instructions in Jon’s pre-signing tweet, they brought along a truly random object to have burgerized: the common dixie cup. The results really elevate this formerly disposable object. The Elektrodrop crew also picked up a customized Munny and an autographed microfiber cleaning cloth.

On December 17th, Jon did a signing at Kidrobot’s London location. Beforehand, he used twitter to encourage people to “bring crazy things along to be doodlearized, sillier the better!” The fans really came through with toys, clocks, cups, cars, clothes and even a plastic pigeon. And Jon gamely doodled it all. Looked like a great time. Photos via Kidrobot, The Daily Street, and Elektrodrop. Posts about the individual objects to follow all morning, so stay tuned to Doodlesplatter!
