“Father” Embossed Antique Cup – ZPF Germany


Sold Out SignPerfect “Father’s Day” gift to or from the vintage lover: a labeled mug manufactured by The Zwickau Porcelain Factory (ZPF) in Saxony, Germany (circa 1887-1900); note their swan trademark in the close-up.

“Father” is raised embossed lettering on this heavy, extra-large handled cup. There’s nothing skimpy about the size of this cup; it will hold a lot of steaming coffee or tea for Dad. Or let it set out on the desk with pens and pencils. The lettering is blue and embellishments are gold.

CONDITION: There is some wear of the gold rim of the cup, and along the bottom of the cup. One little nibble on inside rim (see photo close-up). There are cracks or crazing visible. (See photo close-ups.)

SIZE: Holds 12 oz. liquid.

DIMENSIONS: 3 1/4″ high x 3 3/4″ wide (5 1/4″ with handle)
