Old Uncle Wiggily Ovaltine Mug
This vintage Ovaltine mug features Uncle Wiggily and his pal Grandpa Goosey Gander. It shows the rabbit and goose, dressed in their finest, walking arm and arm down a path with the Ovaltine House in the background. The image was done by the American illustrator Lang (Lansing) Campbell. The back has a smaller image of Uncle Wiggily in a hurry with his arm outstretched. The caption reads; Uncle Wiggily Wants his Ovaltine. The top edge and the handle have a simple, blue line trim. On the bottom it reads; Uncle Wiggly - Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. - Copyright 1924 by Fred Wish, Inc. - Licensed to Sebring Pottery Co. - Manufactured for The Wander Co.,Chicago - Makers of Ovaltine.
It measures almost 3" in diameter at the top, excluding the handle and 2 7/8" at the base. It measures about 3" tall and is in very good condition with no chips or cracks and minimal wear. Both decals are in good condition with minimal wear. The painted line on the front edge has a flaw where it was probably touched during firing. This is a manufacturing flaw and not damage.
