The souvenir mugs designed every year are popular gifts and mementos. For the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Schönbrunn Christmas Market there was two mugs to choose from: a classic black-and-white ceramic mug and a special gold version. From the vast array of forms in Schönbrunn Palace, the POLKA designer duo took inspiration for the 2018 anniversary version from the Rococo ceiling ornamentation in the imperial apartments.
The terrace room on the west side of the palace contains wonderful silk wallpaper and magnificent gold stucco ornaments. One of these elements formed the basis for the 2018 mug design. Schönbrunn Palace is framed by two gold stucco elements, silkscreen printed with authentic gold foil onto the mug.
