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.
