    I have a few 30's and 40's coffee mugs to post... please share your vintage mugs & cups!

    My set of four Restaurant Ware coffee muggs. W. S. George “Hotel” mugs from the 1930s (the 106D on the bottom dates it to the 30s)

    I often use these heavy 1943 Homer Laughlin White Restaurant Ware Coffee Mugs.

    “F” for June. “43” for 1943. “N" for the Newell potteries in Newell, West Virgnia. 6 for the specific plant number.

    One of my favorite things to collect is WWII era 1 Pint mugs made in England by many potteries for the Royal Air Force and also used by US Army Air Forces and Royal Canadian Air Forces. Typically filled with coffee or tea and after a mission often spiked with whiskey! :D
    “Mass-produced by the million to Government specification, and likely to damage reputation of British Potters.” - Pottery Gazette and Glass Trade Review, May 1943

    Two WWII era NAAFI (Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes) tea/coffee cups. NAAFI was established through Winston Churchill as a Not for Profit organization December 6, 1920 to run recreational establishments needed by the British Armed Forces, and to sell goods to servicemen and their families. It’s the equivalent of an american post-exchange. I purchased these from a gentleman in England who found these and others in storage where they were crated for many years at RAF BINBROOK . The crates were dated 1944/1945 and acquired when the base closed down.

    this is a common and easy one to get. the 1940s Tepco China Army Medical Corps mug. I like the weight of these old mugs. There are a few variations on the design, shape and logo for these.
