This red and white striped Country Club by Yona for Shafford Mug must be the cutest mug you've ever seen! The bright red and white stripes will be sure to start your day off with a smile! The red stripes fluctuate with the shape of the piece and average about 1/2-inches in width. The word “Mug” is written in black script, with a black ribbon flourish above and below. The handle is completely painted red.
The barrel-shaped mug is 3-1/2 inches tall and 3-inches in diameter at the top and about 3-3/4 inches at the middle. The handle protrudes about 1-1/4 inches out from the side.
Country Club was designed by Yona Ceramics for Shafford, Japan during the 1950s. It is marked in black “Country Club by Yona.”
These Country Club items are vintage pottery pieces and often have minor flaws such as tiny edge nicks and non-discolored crazing, but I am pleased to find none on this sweet mug. Glaze pops and irregularities are also common, and there is a noticeable mark, almost like a stilt mark, in the red stripe to the right of the g. There is an extra spot of pottery in the bottom forming a bump. The colors are bright with minimal wear.
I appreciate your interest in my items. Please make Maggie Belle's Memories a Favorite Shop to receive updates on new listings!
