Cobalt blue squares make the checkerboard on this set of 2 vintage stoneware mugs.
These mugs are sandy-gray stoneware with deep cobalt blue squares. A solid cobalt blue line borders the top and bottom of the checkerboard design. The top of the mug is plain. These mugs have an applied handle.
They are quite small measuring 3 1/4" (8.3 cm) tall and 2 5/8" (6.7 cm) in diameter. Each mug will hold approximately 4 oz. of liquid.
There is a mark stamped in brown on the underside of each mug. On both it looks like it was double-stamped making it difficult to read. The first line appears to read, "An approved". The second and third lines we haven't been able to make out.
These mugs are very heavy and quite sturdy. They are from my mother's pottery collection. I absolutely love them - but, will never use them (we're 12oz + mug users in this house) so it's time for them to find a home where they will be truly appreciated.
Thanks for visiting! Have a fantastic day!
