1974 Royal Copenhagen Large Annual Mug Sterling Silver Medallion Crowned AM Mark
Date: This mug is dated 1974 representing the eighth annual issue in the series.
Size: The mug is ~4" in diameter at the base, ~4” in diameter at the top, ~4 5/8" high, and is ~5 3/4" at its widest including the handle. The piece weighs about 1 pound 4.5 ounces.
Maker: Royal Copenhagen.
Marks: On the base in black under glaze the following markings: Crown with the word ROYAL COPENHAGEN surrounding it and the word DENMARK under it. There are wavy lines below that, then the word FAJANCE and the letters "VP" below it all. There is also an abstract mark in a circle, which we are not familiar with. Finally, the sterling button has the marks "925 S DENMARK" in two lines and the crowned letters AM within a triangle having curved sides. There is also what looks like number impressed into the base near the edge. See photos for additional details.
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a real nice 48 years old piece in great condition, which is very desirable to collectors of Royal Copenhagen.
Condition: The Mug is in excellent condition. It has no chips, cracks, hairlines, crazing, or repairs. The piece is a bit soiled with the foot being a bit darkened with soiling and the Sterling Silver button, on the bottom, being a bit tarnished. It would benefit from a good cleaning to bring out its full beauty, but we leave that to the discretion of the new owner. Please see photos for additional condition information and details.
