I did get the one of the bottom. Now use the Add Files feature to add one of the cup.
If the Add Files feature does not work for you, you can also email the pictures to***@******.*** and put 'for rarewares in antiques' in the subject line so that they will forward to me. Use the same email that you used to create your account. This way takes a few hours usually, so thank you in advance for your patience.
I got the picture, thank you.
This is a 1940-50 coffee cup made by Shenango China of Pennsylvania, this mark having been used from 1940 to now. The Riker's logo on the cup indicates that it came form Riker's "Corner House" , one of many Riker's restaurants found throughout Manhattan and Queens (the first one at at West 4th Street and 7th Avenue South) in the 1940's and 50's. While it's possible that restaurateur E. William Riker was related to the Rykers from whom the City purchased the island for the future prison, the contrast between singular possessive—Riker's—and plural non-possessive—Rikers—suggests the two were not related.
This coffee cup has a current value of $15.00.
