Faggs coffee mugs
handpotted coffee mugs for "Faggs" Faggs10

I may have posted one of these before, but can't find it on search.
I have not seen the first two together but from my photos they appear to be different colours.
No marks for maker on any of them.

I did not know that Faggs coffee was a New Zealand company so although I have posted this in "Is this NZ pottery?" I am confident that they are part of NZ coffee and pottery histories.

Faggs was founded by Alfred Fagg at least in part to supply those Wellington immigrants with a coffee tradition that the NZ blend of coffee and chicory failed to satisfy. The Cuba Street store established in 1926 became a Wellington icon.
See Faggs.co.nz

I have contacted Faggs to see if I can find out whether these mugs were promotional items or for store use. I am looking for a maker or makers, and dates.
