I'll be drinking my tea out of one of these cups today. Aren't they interesting with their clamp on copper handles? Remove the handles they become a drinking glass. I have two more packed away, one orange and one yellow.
Now for the mystery. I've looked all over trying to find the maker of these. They have the look of Fiesta Ware but are unmarked. The cups belonged to my Grandmother. They were part of a set of very colorful dishes she had probably in the 40's. A set very much like Fiesta Ware. I don't know what happened to the dishes and don't really remember how I came to have the cups. I do enjoy using them occasionally and going back to Grandma's kitchen in my memory.
So, if any of you collectors out there have any idea about the maker of these, or the date they were made I would love to know.
Meanwhile, go visit the Altered Book Lovers blog and see what the other Tuesday Tea drinkers are up to.
I want to thank Voodoo Vixen for trying to help me with the mystery. She found these by Bauer Pottery.
The handle on this one looks right but the tumbler is smooth.
Wrong handle and the "rings" on this Ringware piece are more frequent and less pronounced that on my cups.
I do believe it is Bauer though looking at the picture of the first handle. Perhaps they did the cup a bit different at different years.
