Black Mug With Born to Rune Design.
The runic inscription reads 'Borna at run' in old norse, which translates roughly as Born to Rune. Old norse was the language runes were used to communicate, and while the old norse 'Risti' would be more correct for the writing of runes, we have used 'run' - the word for runes. This pun was used in the book Soul Music by Terry Pratchett. The knotwork at the bottom is based on a design from Viking age York.
Dishwash on the top shelf.
