50s children’s mug [sold]

Retro 'Whistle' cat mugVintage children’s mug
made in Japan, 1950s

This is a ‘Whistle for your milk’ mug, that comes complete with a whistle in the handle [believe me, it works] and a cat with googly eyes [they work too.]

The mug was part of a 50s dairy promotion to increase milk sales, and it was also made with a bird, cow and dog. But for my money- it’s a cat that likes milk; birds and dogs are nonsensical and a cow is just weird!

I’m not sure if the pink-eyed pyscho cat is awfully fabulous or fabulously awful. Cat lovers and people who enjoy whistles in their crockery won’t care either way.

The mug is for sale: $AUD30
