This vintage mug has all the correct markings from the factory: the jar, the initials JT (for Joost Thooft, who bought the factory in 1876) and the city’s name, Delft. Below that there are three codes. To the left are the initials of the painter (JBR). To the right is the year code: CJ stands for 1965. Under these is an internal code for the piece. This mug’s code is 1013.
The word “Prosit” is nicely painted on the mug to the left of the handle, and is surrounded by blue flowers, leaves, and dots. All the painting was done by hand. The design is in light and dark blue, and the background is slightly grayish – not a bright white. It measures 4.5 inches (11.3 cm) high, 3 and 5/8 inches (9.2 cm) across the base, 3 and 1/8 inches (8cm) across the top, and about 5.5 inches (14 cm) wide, including the handle. It is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, or stains – perfect for either a Delft or mug collection!
