Mark is a transliteration of English mug, which means mug with a big handle. Ceramic mug is a kind of home-made mug, which is generally used for hot drinks such as milk, coffee and tea. Some western countries also have the habit of drinking soup during work breaks with ceramic mugs. The cup body is generally cylindrical or quasi-cylindrical and has a handle on one side of the cup body. The handle shape is usually a half ring. Usually the material is pure porcelain, glazed porcelain, glass, stainless steel or plastic. There are also a few mugs made of natural stone, which are generally more expensive.
