Dutch ceramic factory Cor Unum has been around since 1953, but the Diablo mug actually dates from the 1960s.

It’s part of a series of designs that were reissued to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the company – and now being sold at the V&A as part of its Cold War Modern exhibition. A unique earthenware design in black, red or orange, you can probably entertain yourself by watching your friends spill their coffee all over their front when using it. Or more practically, you could use it as a small vase.

Coffee or flowers, it’s a very stylish item – and one can be yours for £30.
