Vintage covered wagon Fred Roberts Co. dishware set of 6 mugs. With signature covered wagon motif, looped rope design, spur sets, branding irons and brands encircle each cup, even the handles have a bit of rope running on them! In lovely pastel tones these Fred Roberts Co. dishware signature items are one of the many, many styles of china brought in post-WWII as Japanese imports. The stylized designs shown here, and especially the brands, have a distinctly foreign feel and it is not at all surprising to learn they are Japanese in origin. These vintage covered wagon mugs are in great condition, one shows a bit more crazing than the others, but every one is free from chips of any kind.

Size measures: 3"Diameter x 3-1/2"H

Following the attack on Hiroshima, the surrender of the Empire of Japan formally ended the hostilities of WWII.  Post WWII Japan experienced what was known as an  economic miracle! During the economic boom, Japan rapidly became the world's second largest economy, behind the US, by the 1960s. In this post war period all matter of items were produced and brought in as import from Japan by importers like the Fred Roberts Co. of San Francisco, CA. Japanese imports of the time included all kinds of dishware like these covered wagon vintage mugs. For more post WWII Japanese import items in vintage kitsch style, click here!
