Mushroom Patterned Mugs, Made in Japan

14 Jun

Wonderful set of 4 colourful pedestal mugs, with pattern of mushrooms in blue, green and mustard yellow. These colours, and of course the mushrooms, are indicative of the late 60’s or early 70’s.  Japan manufactured a huge amount of colourful dishware for the North American market during this time period so it is still relatively easy to find and collect.  Finding items in mint condition is a little harder and prices usually reflect that.

These mugs are in wonderful condition and are on display and for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.

Priced at $20 for the set of 4.

Anchor Hocking Card Suit Milk Glass Mugs

anchor hocking card suit mugs

These mugs were purchased at a little antique store in a small town on one of our jaunts last summer. I put them away for a while and thought I might keep them but alas, I have too much stuff in my basement and I decided to list them on ebay. They sold within minutes for a huge amount of money so I was pretty happy with my decision to part with them.

They are made by Anchor Hocking sometime in the 1970’s and were in excellent clean condition.  What a Fab Find!

Note: These mugs have been SOLD!!
