Set of Two Vintage Mid-Century Winking Santa Mugs


Ho, ho, ho! Two Santas are better than one! I found these Vintage Mid-Century Winking Santa Mugs this past winter. They were in the package, never opened. In fact, the kraft paper wrapping had gotten stuck to the mugs. I pulled the wrapping off, cleaned the little bits of stuck paper, and they are in near perfect dead-stock condition. No chips, no stains, no marks, top of one mug has paint brush marks, because these were hand painted. Comes with the delightful original box. From Commodore, Made in Japan.

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.
