Please help me identify these mugs, in the hopes of possibly acquiring more of them.
Once upon a time, many, many years ago, my mom gifted me a set of mugs. They are stoneware (not porcelain), look to be mold-made (not thrown), but appear to be hand-painted/glazed (Asian-style botanical motifs). There's no marking/logo on the bottom.
I've found mugs on etsy
and ebay (one
) that are similarly sized and shaped (different hand-painting/glazing/designs, though). I've asked the sellers if they have any info on the manufacturer — no luck. Mom doesn't remember where she got them, either.
- my set (one
) there were 6 originally, one broke
- mold mark
- with ruler for scale (width
- 3.5" tall x 3.25" diameter (excluding handle)
- they hold about 8 ounces (250 ml)
I'm hoping there's a MeFite out there who recognizes these mugs and can clue me in on who made/makes them.
