Vintage Nesbitt's Hot Chocolate Pottery Mug. This is a very hard to find piece that was made in the 1930's to 1940's. These mugs were made by Chefsware, this company was officially known as the H. F. Coors Pottery and was founded in Inglewood, Califorina in 1925 by Herman Coors, the third son of Adolph Coors of Coors Beer. Herman Coors had worked with his father and two brothers during the early years of the Herold China and Pottery Co. and became manager of the plant in 1916. The H. F. Coors Pottery did not make chemical porcelain but produced many other items such wall tile, faucet handles, shower heads, plumbing fixtures, doll heads and commercial pottery for the hotel and institutional market. The most typical marks are H. F. Coors Inglewood Calif, Chefware, Coorsite and Alox. The company closed sometime in the 1980's. These mugs are apparently a promotional item for Nesbitt's Hot Chocolate. They have Nesbitt's Hot Chocolate in raised letters across the front, they are 4 1/4" tall and are marked on the bottom with Chefsware, USA. Both are in excellent condition, no chips, one has a glaze skip on the edge and what appears to be a small paint smear on the bottom of the foot, both common occurrences in pieces of this era. Unique addition to your collection! Shipping is less for combined purchases then the above quoted individual cost per item combined and will be adjusted after your order is placed.
