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 mug is from the Original Pantry Café that first opened in 1924 in Los Angeles, California. They’ve been in business for over 80 years and continue to be a famous Los Angeles landmark. In their current location since 1950, there are great neon signs out front, a 1950s diner style counter with stools, in addition to a dining room. Open 24 hours, they never close their doors. The motto of the Original Pantry Café is “We never close. We’re never without a customer.”
This sturdy coffee mug was made by Delco Atlantic China. It is most likely from the 1970s. The Original Pantry Café sells mugs today as souvenirs to their customers.
