How about some creepy-crawlies alongside your dinner? Might sound unappetizing, but the pattern is delightful. Black butterflies and beetles provide such a nice pattern on bone china; a few of these plates or mugs are sure to find their way into any entomologist’s (amateur or professional) hands. The mug would make an especially excellent gift, by the way.
