Black was the color chosen for the 1971 Frankoma Pottery Political Mugs, and this one is in mint condition. It has no chips, cracks, or repairs. Frankoma began making the political mugs in 1968 and up until 1974 only the GOP elephant mugs were produced. Only beginning in 1975 and thereafter were both major parties represented. These are 5 ounce mugs and were the design of one John Frank, originally for the National Republican Women's Club. The mugs for inaugural years are have the President and Vice-President Elect names on them.
Thanks for stopping by.
