This is a vintage stoneware mustache mug made by Otagiri Japan. (Otagiri Mercantile Company, headquartered in San Francisco, was a Japanese-American manufacturer of stoneware ceramics that started in 1946. The stoneware was produced by a small group of artists who hand painted and glazed an array of forms and decorations.) This is my everyday coffee or hot tea mug. It holds approximately 8 ounces. The handle comfortably fits my fingers and is nicely balanced. The Etsy seller believes the mug is from the 70s. One side has a classic biplane while the other has a hot air balloon.

It's in great shape with no chips, miner staining, miner hairline crack on mustache guard that looks like a manufacturer flaw (you must look very hard to see it).

Mug measures 3 1/2" tall, 3 1/4" across. There are no manufacturing markings etched or stamped on the bottom.


I begin each morning with this mug filled with my morning coffee. In the evening, before bed, I wrap up my day with this mug filled with steamy Sleepytime Tea, accompanied by a fantastic book.
