This is a limited edition ‘Christmas’ Snoopy mug, which has Snoopy as Santa delivering presents in his Sopwith Camel plane. I note that he is delivering koala bears and skateboards- the gift of choice in 1965!
The mug was made in Japan under license to United Features Syndicate, which owns the Peanuts franchise. Due to the presence of the koala bear, I have styled the mug with some nice Eucalyptus leaves.
I have a little Peanuts collection going- see post below with:
Snoopy letter/envelope writing set, made by Hallmark; Melbourne, Victoria 1958
Linus ‘Try it…you’ll like it’ figurine, made by Aviva; Hong Kong 1970
Snoopy and Woodstock jug, made by Peanuts Characters Corp; USA 1965
Linus ‘To know me is to love me’ bowl, made by United Feature Syndicate Inc; Japan 1962
The mug is for sale: $AU15 – let me know if any of the other Peanuts collection appeals to you.
