Desirable Fire-King Mugs

 I only went to one garage sale this weekend.  And I only spent $1.75, which is good because I am going to be laying out alot of money for a local on-line auction next week  I spent 75 cents on the gold metal corner shelf, and $1 on a set of gold Fire-King mugs.  The mugs are not my usual type of purchase, but I loved the gold color (my current favorite color.)

I had some memory of researching Fire-King Mugs before, and knew that these were good sellers.  I think I could get an easy $4 each for them on ebay, especially in their minty condition.  Their pattern is called "Kimberly".

Other desirable Fire-King mugs that I found on ebay: the jadeite restaurantware (set of 8 sold for $600), Snoopy (one sold for $500) or other vintage cartoon mugs (six Warner bros cartoon mugs sold for $300), First Man On The Moon (one sold for $450).  So don't overlook that big box of mugs at the next garage sale, there could be one in there worth hundreds of dollars!

  1. I have a bunch of Fire King mugs stuffed in a cabinet. I'm not as in love with them as I use to be. They will be on the get rid of list after we finish selling all of the storage unit stuff.

  2. some of the decorated fire-king is worth a small fortune now. hopefully, that is what you have.

  3. Great find on those! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!
