I see a lot of retro patterns these days. As a lover of Mid-Century Modern furniture, glass and pottery I don’t mind this trend! I love for instance these Fire-King mugs. They will look good in any kitchen!

For those who do not know Fire-King: a Fire-King mug is a milk glass, jadeite, azurite or vitrock coffee mug or sometimes cup, which was made by American company Anchor Hocking Glass Corporation (Anchor Hocking) between about 1940 through about 1979. Collectors can find these mugs for sale on ebay. There are also a lot of Japanese websites that offer the mugs as the Japense love Fire-King (vintage in general is hot at the moment in Japan).
