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.

Whiskey Rebellion 1794 Commemorative Diagonal Handle Mug - Pyrex Love

This is a neat commemorative mug for the 1794 Whiskey Rebellion. We have to admit that we don’t really know anything about the history of this - here’s what we are going to do: we are going to wait to write up anything until we hear from a Pyrex collector or mug collector (or anyone!) who knows more about this and can send in an account of the historical events. The reason is, we would rather not try and come up with something just from surfing around. It takes too long to write something up based on the web and is subject to errors, so we will wait for someone who knows about it to write in.

Whiskey Rebellion 1794 Commemorative Diagonal Handle Mug - Pyrex Love

In any case, this mug is a plain 1410 opal white mug with fired on graphics in black depicting a sort of “map” of the Whiskey Rebellion. Included on the “map” are the Monongahela River, Brownsville Rd., Finleyville, Mingo Church (1783), Mingo Cemetary (1784), Route 88, Mingo Creek and the words “Monongahela (Parkinson Ferry)”. Other graphics include pack horses and a group of soldiers, a log cabin and tree.

Whiskey Rebellion 1794 Commemorative Diagonal Handle Mug - Pyrex Love

We’ve tried to show all three sides of the mug in order to give a clear picture of the map. We are a bit confused why this would be a 1776-1976 commemorative when the Whiskey Rebellion says 1794. Again, if someone knows more about this, please write in!
