While it may look like a nuclear power plant cooling tower, this item was in hot demand in the '70's.

The beautiful, hand-crafted (yeah, right!) black porcelain, gold lettered "Casino Mug" was prized and highly coveted. Buy one, and you got beer at preferred "member" prices!

Trouble was, they were pretty hard to clean out, due to their size and shape. As a result, the contents tended to take on new flavors after a few weeks.

Just wait till the Antique Road Show comes to town!
