    I have this mug in 3 other colors also listed (Box 2) Blue, Green and Clear (the rarest of the rare) I have multiples of each color (more than 1 per color) $50 each or $88 for a pair Very Good Vintage Condition, please expect some dings and manufacturing defects, buyer can choose during viewing but I prefer not to deal with fussy customers Rare Pink Chinese Wedding Glass Mug Vividly Embossed with (Box 1 Clockwise) Two Large Double Happiness 双喜 Floral Garland 花环 (Photo 1 2 3) and A Pair of Mandarin Ducks 鸳鸯 (Photo 4) (Chinese Symbol for a Blissful Marriage) Ht 4 inch, Width (incl handle) 4 in Diameter (Mouth) 3.25 in Ø (Base) 2.25 in Presented by Comrades to the happy couple, the glass double happiness mug is a much rarer wedding gift than the ubiquitous enamel double happiness cups / mugs (Box 3 for illustration purposes only), a practical custom in Communist China where consumer products were scarce and household essentials were appreciated by the newly weds beginning a new stage in their lives, in lieu of luxury goods like jewelry which would probably get them (the giver and the recipient) publicly arrested, humiliated and beaten by the red guards during the cultural revolution 文革. I have a large collection of Chairman Mao Badges, Publications and other CR Memorabilia, check out my other listings, or chat to enquire, thank you
