From the late 1950's or very early 60's this Mr. Peanut Plastic Cup was part of the Planters Nuts Promotional Advertising for their peanuts. Mr. Peanut with a monocle in his left eye was quite popular. When shown in full figure he appeared to be a wise gentleman who wore a top hat, spats, and carried a cane. The plastic mugs were (are) great for hot chocolate or even just a milk mug for kids. Measuring 3 7/8" tall the cups hold 8 ounces and came in a variety of colors. Four different colors are listed within this shop. The photos of this red mug also show a yellow one that is listed separately. The current colors listed are this bright red, the bright yellow shown in these pics, and a blue and a tan.
The mug is in Excellent Condition without cracks, breaks, or noteworthy wear.
