Mugs as pictured, lightweight ceramic. Nice handles also lightweight. the problem is when I purchased the description said that they are 19 oz. mugs. WRONG!!! my MEASURING CUP SAID THAT AT BEST THEY HOLD 14 OZ. TO THE RIM. With that said, still nice mugs and larger than the average coffee cup but if you are looking for a LARGE coffee cup/mug you may want something else.
