A delightful find this week makes me think of late nights and early college mornings at Clinton, NY’s Breakfast At Tiffany’s Diner (a.k.a. Tiff’s). It is a Shenango China coffee mug so sturdy it could probably be used to hammer a nail into some drywall and come out unscathed. It is likely from the 1940’s and has the logo of ‘The Krystal‘ chain of hamburger restaurants where they encourage you to “Take Along A Sack Full”. It is heavy and sits well in the hand(s) and the thick walls will keep that coffee warm for a good long time.
