A mug is a large cup used for drinking beverages such as coffee, tea, hot chocolate, soup or beer. It has a handle and is larger than the standard cup. Mugs have been in existence since the early ages and they are still in use today. Even though they may be dimmed as old-fashioned by many when used in formal environments like offices, it is no doubt that vintage mugs are used in homes by people who enjoy their drinks.
With steel and strengthened glass designs, these mugs play a major role because they resist breakage. Decoration styles like silk screen printing where prints are imposed on mugs ensure their attractiveness and that the prints do not wear out easily. From artistic impressions to educative and informative or funny messages on these mugs, you can be inspired to make varied selections of them since they come in many models.
Below are some of the delightfully crafted vintage mugs:
Vintage Billboard Love/Hate Mugs. They measure 9 cm high and have exact diameter measurements of 9.0 cm. The Love You or Hate You messages printed on them can be used to simply portray feelings which may or may not be personal, or they may be used to provoke somebody in a playful manner. These ceramic mugs are ideal because they have thick walls which make them strong.
