Vintage "Paw - Come 'N Get Your Coffee!!" Mug - Made in Japan
I came across a garage sale up in Twin Lakes earlier this summer that I was drawn in via a vintage bicycle (that turned out to be a reproduction and was too expensive for me!) and ended up buying this silly coffee mug for $0.25. It has this husband/wife and a pig on it and just spoke to me for some reason. It has a comic strip kind of quality to it, but I can't quite place it.
Not Frank and Ernest. Not quite Beetle Bailey. Kind of like a hillbilly Blondie?
The same mug is on eBay for $19.99, which seems nuts, right?
Oh, did I tell you? This got a MAJOR eye roll from Nat. I made the mistake of leaving it in the front seat after I picked it up and she came across it before I could put it away.
It has some crazing going on and I have to think it will survive the dishwasher if it still looks like this after 40 or 50 years, so I stuck it in the cupboard in Twin Lakes and I'll use it when I can.
One of the big reasons why I bought it? This "Made in Japan" stamp on the bottom.
