Assortment of Mid-Century One-of-a-kind Cartoon Mugs A824 SOLD

Cartoonist ┬áMichael Johnson opened The Mug Shop in Corona Del Mar in 1947, turning out personalized hand drawn mugs, each one an original, 30-40 a day, often gently lampooning the characters and the hobbies and occupations of the delighted recipients. Word soon spread and the store acquired an enthusiastic following, including John Wayne who regularly ordered mugs for the cast and crew of all his movies from “The Alamo” all the way to “The Shootist”. See which one fits you. After all, what’s in a name? Unless it’s one you can drop (thanks, Duke).

12 oz. porcelain.
