Where were the mugs manufactured?
I recently ordered the Waechtersbach Fun Factory Buttercup Mugs to add to my set. I have two of the Buttercup colored 4-piece settings. I love the bright colors and find the pieces a decent quality and nicely sized and shaped for dining or snacking. The fun factory seems to offer other bright colors. The buttercup yellow theirs is one of the most attractive bright yellow colored (not too pale or drab). I compared to several on other sites and this one seemed to have the best rich yellow. I would recommend the Fun Factory products....

The FAQ said that these mugs were made in Germany, but they are not. They are made in China. I have several older Waechtersbach mugs made in Germany (as well as some made in Spain, identical to the German ones), and these new ones are both larger and heavier. The handles are chunkier and the glaze color less more raucous and less pleasant. I am not happy with these mugs at all. It's one thing to ship production to China, but why did the company have to change the model and quality so noticeably? Very disappointed, caveat emptor.Read More
