Here is a set of 4 Vintage Otagiri Lemon Fruit Mugs for your consideration.

Totally retro and fun, my best guess is that these mugs are from the late 1960's or early 1970's.

The front and the back of the mugs have 2 different stylized graphics. Both sides show a
fruit that appears to be a lemon with a stem and wedges.

The front graphic is outlined in a brown color and filled in one side with a sunny yellow color.

The back pattern is a smaller graphic of the fruit featuring only a brown color and no yellow.

On the inside top rim of the mug there is a coordinating brown color trim as well.

Each mug measures about 3 3/4 inches tall. The mouth of the mug without the handle is about 2 3/4 inches across. The brown trim on the inside of the mug is about 1/4 inch.

Each mug has the original label on it which read
HAND
CRAFTED
OTAGIRI ORIGINAL
JAPAN

I believe that these are made of stoneware or maybe ceramic, but I am not completely certain of what materials they were rendered from.

Nice set of 4 mugs for coffee, tea, or perhaps some lemonade.

Condition
When I run my finger around the top rims, I note some uneven texture that appears to be teeny bubble pops or bubble bursts. I think this is a result of how the mugs were originally made, but am mentioning it for accuracy.
Some shelf ware from age and storage.
Appears to have not been used by previous owner given that the labels are still on the bottoms.

I just gently wiped down the mugs with a dry soft cloth so as to not tamper with the original stickers.

I will leave any further cleaning up to the new owner.

Please see all the pictures. Pardon the glare and white spots from camera flash.
