Mid-Century blue Victor Coffee Mug
After answering the call of the U.S. Military to build a better coffee mug, a small electrical insulator company out of Victor, New York ended up creating one of the most iconic coffee mugs in America’s history. Choosing to end production of the mugs in the late 1980’s meant that a genuine Victor coffee mug could potentially be difficult to find in the future.
Everyone knows the classic white Victor mugs, but they had an entire line throughout the years that included designs and colors. This baby blue colored mug features a style they only ran for a few years in the late 1950’s. The conical shape has an indented line around the base for decoration, and the handle has a separator for two fingers. They weren’t stamping the bottom during this style, but the unfinished ring on the bottom is a signature Victor move that’s the result of the firing process. This style holds 8 oz.
Condition is outstanding!
