MOSCOW MULE MUGS (Set of 6) Chrome/Polished Stainless Steel Cock N Bull

These are SIX 12 oz MOSCOW MULE MUGS w ith a Chrome/Polished Stainless Steel Finish, made by Cock N Bull Products in the 1950s. Each Mug measures 3 1/4 inches tall, (not counting the handle), with the base being 3 inches in diameter, weighing a little over 8 ounces each and holds 12 fluid ounces. In GOOD condition, with no dents, the handles are secure, and there are no repairs or breaks. I'm sure they could use a polishing, but that's the decision of the buyer and I've left them in their vintage condition, with the patina as found.
