This kiddie mug by Hazel Atlas Glass is in Excellent condition. The cup portrays one of America's most widely acclaimed and loved cowboys from television; Hopalong Cassidy! Hopalong Cassidy, as portrayed by actor William Boyd, became a super hero to children in the 1940's as the honest cowboy who defended those in need. By the early 1950's, Hopalong's image was displayed on children's lunch boxes, dinnerware, watches and all sorts of paraphernalia.
Hazel Atlas manufactured milk glass kid's mugs like this one with Hopalong displayed in four different colors; this black one, a red, a green, and a blue. Some collector's collect all four and others pick their favorite color.
This Hopalong mug has retained its crisp black graphics. There are no nicks, chips, breaks, or stains. You may also be interested in the red one shown in the last photo and also available in this shop at the time of this listing.
