Vintage Trader Dick's Hand Painted Ceramic Mug by Maso Shafford
Made in Japan

Here we have a lovely example of the hand painted Americana that Maso Shafford was producing in Japan. It is 5" tall and 6" wide(with handle) with a 3" mouth. It feature a sign on the barrel reading 'Trader Dick's Fine Old XXX Rum' and a topless Hawaiian lady as the handle. The paint is still nice and vibrant and only has a couple spots where the paint and glaze has chipped off, also a small chip on the lip and some ink stains inside (pics 7-10)
Perfect for a small plant holder, pen holder, cool vintage decor and more.
Should not use for drinking.

Shafford exported pieces to the United States from Japan starting in the 1940s and ending in the 1970s. Shafford produced china planter mugs depicting famous people, music boxes, figurines, pitchers, pill cups, candle holders and a host of other novelty items.

We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
