Cup and ball
Rosenthal is getting into the spirit of things in the run-up to the World Cup. The company's football coffee-cup range (right; $190 to $290 for cup and saucer) is one of a handful of designs the company is bouncing around as potential gifts for fans of the sport. There are also basketball, tennis and golf versions. Another new offering is its Loft collection (far right; $100 to $460), which harmonises settings with a blue, turquoise and grass-green colour scheme. Available from Exclusivites, shop 101, Prince's Building, tel: 2877 2815, and other outlets.
