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.

This is a Squirt soda fountain glass, copyright 1948. It is about 5 ¼ inches high. There aren’t any markings to determine the manufacturer. It’s a soda fountain glass that advertises Squirt soda.

Squirt is a grapefruit-flavored soft drink that was first introduced in 1938. This carbonated fruit drink was created by Herb Bishop of Dallas, Texas. The character featured on the glass is called “Little Squirt” and was created by Bishop and his partner, Ed Mehren in 1941. Squirt continues to be one of the best-selling grapefruit drinks in the U.S. today.

    The “Little Squirt” guy was my Uncle Billy Albaugh until his death in 1985.

    Actually, that Little Squirt image was based on my father when he was a boy. My grandparents owned Red Dot.
