Orzel made many different shapes of beer mug, decorated with a variety of club monograms, special events details, and current and historic beer labels.

While I was chatting with Brian Ronson in the weekend he happened to spy this mug or another like it on the iPad.
Adelaar, Aquila, Orzel mugs: historic beer bottle labels Adelaa17

Brian told me that in Wellington in 1978 he was approached about using his historic beer bottle label collection on a range of mugs. Payment was to be one mug with each label, but that didn't happen!

So, when you see one like this, with a historic label, the artwork will be from Brian's collection. He later said maybe 1979, but that is of no consequence: it puts a date on this range, which is good new info.

Eds. I see from the gallery some were made as Adelaar. It's always tricky with these Adelaar, Aquila, and Orzel shapes when they don't have a clear basemark or sticker.

Next day. So, these were marketed under all three names. Aquila one for sale:
