Vintage 1940s 1950 Pope Gosser China Santa Claus Pottery Mug Cup Christmas Dish:
Vintage Pope Gosser china Santa Claus pottery mug cup Christmas punch RARE
Fun early piece of Santa pottery for the collector - This is my second, and last cup and I am going to part with it, and put it up for sale.
Scarce early Santa mug / cup made by the Pope Gosser pottery company. I thank the experts on the glass and pottery discussion board in identifying the maker. The only marking on this vintage Christmas pottery pieces is an embossed U.S.A. on the base.
Pope Gosser was in business from 1902 through 1958. This particular design appears to be quite scarce. Exact date is unknown. With the decal design, I believe this to date to the 1930’s or early 1940’s – others thought the art work of the Santa was a stylized 1950’s piece.
Approx height – 3 ¼ inches
Diameter at top – 3 ¾ inches
Diameter at base – 2 ½ inches
Condition: Very Good. No chips. No cracks. Santa design is still lovely and bright – no fading evident – There is some light crazing in the off white background color – mainly in the interior base of the mug.
Heavy piece of vintage Pope Gosser china – well packaged, will weigh over 1 pound, under 2 – Can send Parcel or Priority - No handling fees
