Circa 1940: In 1939, George Washington was making the rounds of popularity again, as the first president of the United States, celebrating his 150th innaugural anniversary. Homer Laughlin Potter Company paid their tribute during the Worlds Fair in New York City, at the American Potter exhibit, with a variety of portrait mugs, pitchers and creamers, masterfully carved, with an exhuberance of detail. George's steadfast other, Martha Washington, was also produced, but in much smaller quantities and will be harder to find. But she was not forgotten and was also given the most exquisite attention to detail. This pair of George and Martha Washington mugs, in the large 5" size, dipped in the classic Homer Laughlin Ivory Century Vellum Glaze, boasts a matching set of marks on the bottom, beautifully molded, showcasing the now famous trylon and perisphere. No damage to either.
