About This Item
Nothing says “I Love You” like ‘Guh-ge-yoo-i”. It is printed here boldly and beautifully in the Cherokee syllabary in white on one side of a generously portioned, black bistro mug.
Sequoyah, in 1821, created a writing system for the Cherokee language using symbols to represent each of the 85 sounds of the language. As seen on this mug, each of the four symbols represents a sound. Put the sounds together and you have Guh-gey-yoo-i, “I love you.” Tell someone how much they mean to you in one of the most unique ways possible. With every sip they’ll be reminded of you and how much you care. The design features prominently a stylized heart, done in a tribal pattern reminiscent of the swirls and lines seen in Cherokee pottery.
This barrel-shaped bistro mug has a black satin finish on the exterior and is deep apple red on the interior. It features a large handle designed for comfort. It is generously portioned. It holds 16 ounces. That’s two cups!
Each mug comes with a simple but elegantly printed note describing the significance of the design and a brief history of Sequoyah and the Cherokee syllabary.
