Pattern: Advertising / Specialty
Identifiers / Alternate Names: This category includes pyrex items that were customized for companies, produced for advertising purposes, or made for special events such as one time employee gatherings. While there might not be much distinction between this category and the "Promotional / Unknown" category, we felt that because of the large number of advertising items (mugs in particular) that they should be placed in their own category to avoid cluttering the already crowded promotional category. In most cases, these items are not sets but single items.
Item Type: Advertising Standard D Handle Coffee Mugs
Values: Check below on Ebay for approximate prices
Sizes and ID#s: No number (300 ml)
This mug contains the same picture on both of its sides. It features the words “Charleroi Total Quality” and that big Apple-Q, both in brown-red or maroon coloring. The Q is written in a smoother script that one of the later Charleroi plant mugs we have and most interestingly, inside the “Q” is the old Corning Glassblower’s logo. (Funny, the first time I saw this logo I thought it was a piper playing a flute!)
The mug is the common standard D-Handle style Pyrex style with “Pyrex Microwave Safe” stamped on the bottom, no ID, and holding about 300 ml, about 10oz. This is one of my lesser favorites of these types of plant mugs for 2 reasons: no date anywhere on the mug, and the designs on both sides of the mug are identical. Still, it’s a fun cup to have.
