Vintage style with a modern twist-- Ab Fab mugs!
Aren't these mugs from McCheek's Mayhem...well...exactly what they claim to be...absolutely fabulous? They are cast from a plaster mold the seller created from a vintage mug...and I'm sure I know almost exactly what that original mug looked like, too! I know the style...tres 1970s. The original was probably avocado green, harvest gold, yellowy-brown, or orange, and had the word "JAPAN" stamped on the bottom but no other maker mark...just like these or these from our vintage shop, in other words!
With this updated version, though, you get the funky style and the stacking ability with the modern twist of cheeky typography and chopped-up florals.
