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 tan mug also show a blue one that is listed separately. The current colors listed are this tan (a true peanut color), the blue shown in these pics, and a bright red and a yellow.
The mug is in Very Good Condition without cracks, breaks, or noteworthy wear.
