Product Description

Brown mugs were introduced during the Second World War (circa 1944) as they were less conspicuous than the old white enamel mugs.

These did not tend to have markings during the war, though I have seen 1945 dates on late production examples. These mugs continued to be manufactured into the 1950s and are very similar in appearance.

As a general rule, the wartime mugs are a darker shade of brown and have three dots. Note the three dots on the base, which is where the mug stood on a stand during the firing process to dry the enamel The mug below is unmarked but has a nice dark color and the dots from firing.
