This stylish pencil (or otherwise) cup has great style and quality with a white and green stylized flower against a shiny black background. It measures 4 3/8" tall and 3 1/4" diameter. Its condition is just about perfect, except for one little rough spot on the rim...see the last photo. The inside is clean.

Interestingly enough, it has an original sticker on the bottom which states, "Quality You Can See - Quality You Can Trust - Mobil Finishes Company, Inc." along with the iconic Mobil emblem. This part of the Mobil corporation sold car parts and finishes starting in the 1960s, so perhaps this was a promotional item given to the gas stations/garages to brighten up the front desk.

I also read that for a period of time in the in the 60s and 70s, Mobil Oil had a system where folks could save up points from purchases and then could buy items with their earned points. This could be an item from that program.

Whatever its original intent, it's a fun, retro, great quality piece with many possible uses...and also great for a Mobil memorabilia collector.
