Good Luck 1955 – 57

We place the Good Luck mug around 1955-57 because it has the Bob Williams 222 Occidental address in stamp.   It’s also another one of the Wallace yellow mugs like used for The Quiet Man and Big Jim McLain so Bob probably still had a few of these around the shop.   We find it interesting that the front and back seem reversed on this mug.  The “Good Luck” which is almost always on the back now appears on the front, and the image on the back.  Of course this is basing the front and back on the position of the handle.   These were probably “just in case” mugs for when Duke wanted to do something nice for someone and it wasn’t a special occasion.

“John Wayne mug hand painted by Bob Williams in the mid 1950s.  Super nice condition.”

This is the most we've ever seen paid for this mug... the "record".   Average values are considerably less, usually less than half.
