I live in the Deep South and Fire King is just synonymous with rural living. I grew up with most of these things and pick up little extras when I am out and about. So here is my collection, and I hope you enjoy looking at them! Of the set, 21 are Fire King, four are Federal, one is Glasbake, and one is milk glass. There are a couple which are unique to my area (Escambia Hospital -- closed long ago but in the Pensacola, Florida area, and the Press-Gazette, our local rag). Most are in very good condition.
Fire King cups were meant to be used, not displayed, so it is likely that lots of coffee (milk, no sugar) were consumed out of these cups. There's not a one that I wouldn't hesitate to serve coffee to my neighbor in, however. There's Kimberly mugs, Barrell mugs, Stacking mugs, Disney, advertising, Ziggy, flowers, and patterns. There's "d-handled" mugs, and others in all shapes and sizes. A great way to start, or add interest to, your collection.
I am taking a chance here and starting the auction at $0.99. Why? I like the idea of letting the market decide the value. It is fun to log on to Ebay in the morning and see how high my auction has gotten. Risky? Yes, but I have found that I almost always get a fair price. Shipping is a bit high, because you know these mugs are quite heavy and have to be packed well to get from my kitchen to yours. I have a few other Fire King items I am putting on today, so feel free to look and of course, I will combine shipping.
I hope to see YOUR bid when I log on in the morning!
Enjoy them as much as I have.
