Vintage Corning Ww2 Navy Watch No Handle Hand Warmer Milk Glass Mug Military Usa:
These Great WWII Navy Watch Mugs were made by Corning and have the Hornblower Trademark on the bottom. They were used on Naval Vessels and designed without handles so that in an emergency they could just be dropped without the chance of your gloved fingers getting caught in the handle. Sailors loved them as handwarmers. They stand 3-1/2" high and is 3-3/4" in diameter. They are very heavy duty and weigh almost 1 lb. These Mugs are in Excellent Condition. There is some wear which is consistent with the age of the mugs but, considering, very little. Both mugs are included in this sale.
FYI: Here is some interesting data on these and other mugs:
