Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
Set of four vintage Fire King D Handle mugs. They are labeled with numbers 5, 14, 19, and one with no number. Based on the script on the bottom, these were manufactured in the mid-late 1950s. In good used vintage condition with some minor marks and very small, barely noticeable cracks; these do not appear to be used too heavily. No chips, except for a tiny one near the bottom of 14. If you are looking to add perfect, unused looking items to your collection, these are probably not for you. However, if you are looking for a cheap way to build your collection and are willing to deal with a few marks that are noticeable only upon close examination, this is a good set for you.

Back when it was produced, Jadite was produced very cheaply and in mass quantities, and it outfitted military bases, school cafeterias, and diners at the time because its durability was unmatched by clay or porcelain dishware. Anchor Hocking also manufactured less heavy patterns of Jadite for use in the home, and this was often given away in sets as part of promotions in drug stores and department stores. In fact, my grandmother said they used to get mugs just like this in oatmeal boxes!

Each is approximately 3 3/8" tall with 3 1/4" diameter at the top.
