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 cup and saucer set that was manufactured by Syracuse China, manufacturers of restaurant, hotel and railroad dinnerware. Some of their notable clients were the Union Pacific Railroad, the Bell Telephone Company and New York’s Embassy Hotel. The Syracuse China company was started in 1871 and was originally named the Onondaga Pottery Company. In 1966 they changed their name to Syracuse China. Today they are owned by Libbey, Inc. but beginning in 2009, the manufacturing of Syracuse China was moved overseas.
This particular cup and saucer date to 1977 and 1976, respectively. The diamond pattern is called “Jubilee” and was one of the stock patterns available from Syracuse China.
