Here are 2 Vintage Fire King Esso Tiger Coffee Mugs or Cups for your consideration.

These were promotional goodies given out to Esso gasoline customers during the 1950's and 1960's

Esso's advertising people coined the tag line "Put a Tiger In Your Tank" and it became such a popular phrase that Time Magazine proclaimed 1964 as "The Year of the Tiger" on Madison Avenue.

The colorful Esso Tiger is featured on one side of the glass mug while the other side is without graphics.

Each of these milk glass white mugs have the Fire King D handle.

Each mug measures about 3 1/4 inches tall. The mouth of the mug without the handle included measures about 3 inches across.
The base measures about 2 1/2 inches across.
Measurements are approximate.

On the base of the mugs it is embossed ANCHOR HOCKING Anchor logo
Fire-King WARE MADE IN U.S.A.

Nice and shiny, these vintage Fire King mugs are ready to display for an instant collection or to fill with your favorite beverage.


Condition
On the top rims of the mugs, more felt than seen there are a few teeny fleabite size chips. These measure about the size of a sharpened pencil point tip each. They may be factory issues, but are mentioned for accuracy.

There are some white spots within the glass and I can feel the mold seams.On one mug, near the handle, there is an extra bit of milk glass that juts out. There are some straw marks. These are all factory issues.

Just a hint of shelf ware on the bottoms from age and storage.
.

As with most Fire King glass, the usual straw marks, swirls of color, white spots and mold marks are present from the factory when the glass was made.

Please see the pictures and pardon glare from camera flash.
