I'd like to have a coffee mug to match one I remember from my childhood. Dad's is the only one I've ever seen but it seems like the style is (or was, before the advent of fancy travel mugs) probably popular enough. Anyway since my google-fu has failed me I'm coming to you for help.
The mug I'm referring to has no metal or plastic used in the construction. A potter could make one pretty easily (and I'm afraid I may have to commission one made if I want one of my own). Anyway, this is pretty crucial to the style of mug I'm looking for here because there's just something easier to drinking out of a ceramic mug. I think it's something to do with the fact that I don't enjoy coffee pipping hot as much as really, really warm. The plain coffee mug
seems to have a good mix of retaining heat, staying warm in your hand, and easy drinkability that I'm looking for here. Ditto for easy clean-up and pleasing appearance.
Ok, easy, just go get a coffee mug from walmart right?
Here's the hook, the style I'm looking for has a DISTINCT
shape that tapers from bottom to top from a wide, circular, extremely-stable base to a normal size to slightly smaller than normal size/shape opening at the top. Basically Dad had it because when driving down rough roads or starting/stopping the vehicle the coffee inside doesn't tend to slosh out due to the geometry of the mug. The large base also means it's impossible to tip over or slide around without the vehicle itself canting far past the norms of everyday driving.
If you've seen one you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. Think about an exaggerated beer stein
Sources for purchase are great and/or the descriptors/name I should use when googling for myself (since mine have resulted in zero luck).
