Most of us associate vampires with Count Dracula, the legendary, blood-(loving) subject of the epic 1897 novel, Dracula. But the history, love, and interest in vampires began long before, and has continued long after. Therefore, a Vampire deserves a prominent spot in every home's Halloween celebration.
Our Count Dracula the Vampire Halloween Mug starts off with a pumpkin body and is finished with details steeped in timeless, folk art style.
What We Love About Them: We had fun discovering the intricacies of Count Dracula the Vampire's character. He's definitely one that cares about his appearance; we can appreciate his tailored sleeve cuff at the base of the mug's handle, and the embossed bow-tie with a rich orange shirt collar to make it pop.
