This set of 4 vintage mugs have a quaint country farmhouse scene. Each mug has a different scene that depicts one of the seasons. There is a mug for each of the four (4) seasons.
The scenes on these mugs are very, very similar to those of Currier and Ives though they are not Currier and Ives illustrations. They include a farm house, farm, apple trees, snow-capped scenes and horse drawn sleigh…just to name a few.
These mugs stand on a pedestal and hold approximately 8 ounces.
They stand 4" (10.2cm) tall and are 2 3/4"(7.0cm) in diameter.
There are no maker's marks, only a silver and blue sticker that reads "Made in Japan".
I've had these mugs for over 20 years. I received them as a gift from someone who knew I loved Currier and Ives & mistakenly purchased these thinking that is what they were. I have never used them - they have only been on display but they did come from a second-hand shop. They are in very good to excellent condition. There are no cracks, chips or signs of crazing -- no defects that I found.
This is a great set of mugs for those who like the quaint, country feel. They are a pleasant serving size for that cup of coffee and perfect for display in a country home.
