This Hazel Atlas Platonite White mug is decorated in Yellow, Red, & Black with a Gay Nineties Victorian Style design. In Excellent Condition the design remains intact; a Man with a Handle Bar Mustache, a Woman with her Up Do, and musical notes suggestive of a Barber Shop Quartet. The cup is marked with the Hazel Atlas Logo on the bottom and is heavy, thick substantial glass.
**...PLEASE SEE THE COORDINATING SNACK PLATE AND A MOM MUG IN THE SAME COLOR SCHEME (each listed separately). Or, you may wish to coordinate this Dad / Father mug with the matching plate and then couple those items with the two piece, green trimmed "MOM" Plate & Mug that are listed separately. (Please see the last photos for examples of other coordinating items currently available. Each of these items are listed separately but if purchasing together a discount will be applied)
*** A BRIEF HISTORY: In the 1950's Hazel Atlas used this same shape mug as their blank shaving mugs and to create a small line of Gay Nineties dishware. The line included coffee mugs like these and breakfast (or dessert) plates. Mugs came personalized with "Mom" or "Dad" and sometimes as souvenirs for a place of interest or with a city name. The dishes are thought to have been decorated by Gay Fad Studios. Musical Notes & Victorian era couples...Men with Handle Bar Mustaches and Women with their Victorian Up Do's... are part of the common design.
Father's day gift idea for Dad.
