About This Item
This Cherokee I Love You mug clearly expresses love as only you can in, Guh-ge-yoo-i”. It is printed here boldly and beautifully in the Cherokee syllabary in white on one side of a generously portioned, deep red bistro mug. The Cherokee genius Sequoyah, in 1821, created a writing system for the Cherokee language using symbols to represent each of the 85 sounds of the language. He drew each symbol on a piece of paper and those papers came to be known as talking leaves. On this mug there are four symbols, each representing a sound in the phrase “I Love You”. 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 bistro mug has flecks of white and black scattered on a rich red background and is finished with a thin black line around the rim. The interior is white and the mug features a large handle for comfort. It is generously portioned. It holds 16 ounces. That’s two cups!
