Just where in tarnation did the idea of a 6-ounce cup of coffee come from, anyway? All of my mugs hold 10 - 12 ounces. This is what 6-oz. looks like in my mug. Now, I know in previous generations drinking coffee wasn't the past-time it is today, but you'd think American coffee and coffee-maker companies would get up to speed and make larger machines or something!
Here are some coffee cups I have in the kitchen, all vintage except for the first set - which are a Johnson Bros. 'Friendly Village' and a Villeroy & Boch 'Petite Fleur'.
This quail one says Made in England and holds 12 ounces - must be a "breakfast cup". The restaurant mug holds 8 ounces and is stamped VICTOR.
These are Anchor Hocking "Termocrise" cherry glass mugs.
This last one is Mason's of England "Fruit Basket". Mason's has many wonderful patterns. I thought it unusual that it comes in black. We keep the cat toys in it!
