Set of Two Mid-Century Winking Santa Mugs

Set of Two Mid-Century Winking Santa Mugs


This is a second set of two sets of Commodore Mid-Century Winking Santa Mugs. These feature lenticular eyes, but they’re not functional anymore. Mugs show some signs of age, small paint chips on noses, crazing or cracking of porcelain surface, slight discoloration around lenticular eyes which appears to be from the adhesive. Cups are accented with gold paint. Comes securely packed in original box. I don’t think these were ever used.

3”T x 2.5”W

Commodore Manufacturing Corporation appears to have been importing Japanese crafted holiday decorations and selling them at wholesale from their Brooklyn, NY warehouse. These Winking Santa Mugs are knock-offs of the highly coveted Holt-Howard designs. In 2004 after moving manufacturing to China, they leased their property to other tenants.
