Famous Hires Reproduction Mug of a 1905 Rootbeer Mug / Cup
It measures approx. 4" high by 3 3/8" in diam across the top
Hires Root beer mugs have been around since 1893. The mugs are reproduction of a mug produced by Cauldon Ware in England in 1905.
Each original mug was hand made and his reproduction was manufactured with the same exacting standards.
For example, no two mugs are exactly alike because they are not mass producted under normal assembly line techniques.
Each mug has its own mold which is broken after each mug is produced.
The decals of the HIRES are hand applied to each mug. These were made in the 1970's, and I have 4 available. Price is per mug. 3 are perfect and the last (1/2 price) has a sizeable chip on the underside. I also have ORIGINAL antique ones listed too.
We know that mug will allow you to enjoy a bit of yesteryear at less than today's price for such an antique
