This set of two Mosser Glass 9oz mugs is made of thick, durable color flint glass. Made by hand by the expert glassmakers at Mosser who press the molten glass into the vintage molds and put each piece through a glazer, which melts away the top layer to reveal a smooth shiny finish. Mugs are finished by hand, so some variations in color, shape and size are normal and actually makes individual pieces unique. Hand wash with warm soapy water. Not microwave safe. Mug dimensions: 3.75" in diameter x 4" in height, 9oz capacity. Shown paired with a Frank Lloyd Wright Etched Textile Block Coaster.
The origins of Mosser Glass go back more than half a century when Orie Mosser was the plant manager of the Cambridge Glass Company in Cambridge, Ohio. His son Thomas began working there as a teenager, learning the trade from the ground up. When Cambridge Glass closed in 1954, he decided to continue in the glass business building a company of his own. In 1959, he was finally able to begin manufacturing glassware. By 1971 he established Mosser Glass with a product line that blends new designs with timeless classics acquired from Viking, L.G. Wright and of course, Cambridge Glass. They are now the last hand-pressed glass manufacturer in the United States.
