Vintage Cups, Glasses and Mugs

In our blogs, we’ve been featuring a different promotional or corporate restaurantware product made over the years. This is another in the group of cool retro cups, glasses or mugs from our large collection. Here we’ll be sharing what we’ve learned about it and we welcome your additional input and comments.

Dr Pepper Retro Soda Paper Cup

This paper cup was manufactured by the Lily-Tulip Corporation in the 1960s. It was made for use in a Dr Pepper cup vending machine. It is called a “broad base cold drink vending cup”. It measures 3 ¼ inches tall and has a 3-inch diameter across the top. The yellow and red two-tone design and funky type reflect a 60s aesthetic.

Cup vending machines were a popular choice among soda machines in the 1960s. To dispense the drink, first the cup was dropped and the premixed soft drink was poured into the cup.

    I have 15 of these cups and are wonderful to collect. They take up very little room and the history of these cups makes you go back to a time when things were very much different than today.

    I have one of these and a green one. What are they worth?
