This is a stylish, solid mug tree which makes an attractive feature in the kitchen. Initially, I was quite surprised at just how heavy this is, but this does have the advantage of staying upright and being unlikely to topple over even when fully loaded with mugs. It is beautifully designed and solidly built being made of cast iron. It comes very well packaged too so would make a good gift especially for someone who is artistic.
This is an excellent mug-tree. It is fashioned from cast iron, so it is comfortably heavy enough not to topple over, even if the mugs are placed on it unevenly. It is also rather more pleasing on the eye than most mug trees, as it is cast in an Art Nouveau/Art Deco style; very appealing.
I also have to add a note praising the company's customer service. I had a small query regarding this item, and was give exceptionally prompt and courteous personal attention, well above and beyond what is usually experienced these days! Many thanks, guys!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this item. Yes, it's a little more expensive than many mug trees, but in terms of quality, it is miles ahead of the competition.

The mug tree, which was delivered quickly, is a very pleasing design and a good solid weight too. It holds the mugs well without toppling. It was disappointing that I had to return the first mug tree as the joint at the base of the main stem was ill fitting and also the black coating had come off.
The replacement came quickly and this was in much better shape although again some paint had peeled off in the same area. However I have touched it up using a black indelible marker and it now looks nice filled with mugs on my kitchen table.
This tree mug exudes quality. Being cast iron it is very heavy and will certainly not be easy to knock over or even move if you happen to knock it. The branches that hold the mugs are at a forty five degree angle going upwards with what looks like nail heads on the ends, so when you pop all your mugs on they are not going anywhere.
The Bexsimon Cast Iron Tree Mu is tough, sturdy and looks very elegant on our worktops.
A lovely addition to anyone's kitchen.
Primarily this is a mug-tree however it is justifiably marketed as an artwork.
Being cast iron, it is heavy and unlikely to be accidentally knocked over. It is matt black and the tines for the mugs slope inwards, as well as having "nail-head" tops, so mugs are unlikely to slip off unintentionally.
It is an artwork with simple functionality.

I bought as i wanted a nice mug tree, that was also supporting british artists.
Very sturdy cast iron base, with what I think is aluminium mug holders (Not sure if this is to prevent the mug handles getting chipped easily??!)
So happy I also bought the matching Kitchen roll holder, Which although less impressed with - is still a nice peice
