Overview of Brambly Hedge Mugs
Brambly Hedge is the setting of a series of fictional children's books by Jill Barklem. The books follow the daily lives and adventures of mice that live in Brambly Hedge. The illustrations in the books are highly detailed, and use primarily earth tones and pastel colours. They picture quaint scenes of the mice's homes and flowering gardens. The mug series, created by Royal Doulton, features illustrations directly from the Brambly Hedge book series. There are four illustrations, one for each season. The mugs have thin, delicate handles that resemble thorny brambles. The bases flare out slightly and feature a simple floral pattern.

The inside of the mug features the word "Spring" and more yellow flowers.
