Big Jake 1971

Big Jake is the tenth mug that was made by the Mug Shop and of note it was not made with the Burden China blank.  On the final nine mugs made for Duke there is no identification on the mugs as to the manufacturer.  All the nine mugs appear to be the same except for manufacturing variances you would expect, namely a slight variation in color.  They can be distinguished from all previous mugs in that they have a small raised ridge where the handle attaches to the body of the mugs.  Many of these mugs are white, but we see variations to beige.  This is probably due to the firing process during manufacturing as the inside of the mug is usually whiter than the outside.
