Moustache Mug Tycoon Pioneer Black Transferware Porcelain 1970s Japan
This is a great vintage moustache mug with the black transfreware design of a tycoon, pioneer or railroad magnate from the mid 1800s surrounded by ships, trains, agriculture and with an American Eagle and flag at the top.
The porcelain moustache mug or cup measures 4 inches high and is 3.5 inches in diameter with gold trim.
From the looks of the mark, this is from the 1970s. I have seen a couple that also had Japan stickers. There seems to have been a series of these which also included outlaws and other figures from the frontier of the 1800s.
In very good +++ used vintage condition.
