Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this rare Miniature Advertising Mug reading, "Compliments of Pike & Madoc & Smith, Importers of China & Glassware, Utica, New York."

 

The rough circles on the bottom indicate that it is a match safe that holds the matches and provides a striker on the bottom.

 

Dating about 1890, this beauty features exquisite Victorian Graphics with 5 Different Fonts and Fancy Frillwork All Around. A real cutie at only 2 1/8" tall!

 

Excellent Condition. An 1/8" nibble on the bottom edge that may be partially in the making.  That's it!  No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. 

 

Crosses several collecting categories: match safes, miniatures, Utica stoneware, advertising, and china and glass.
