Mug, Southwest Cliff Dweller style
|Availability:||In stock (1)|
800 years ago the Cliff Dwellers of the Mesa Verde Region of the American Southwest made pottery mugs of unique shape and design. This stoneware mug is a faithful recreation of the original Cliff Dwellers’ design.
Treasure Chest Mugs are a family owned business, started by the current owner's Mom and Step Dad (Maretha and Oscar Branson) close to 17 years ago. They were inspired by the history of the Native American Cliff Dweller and Mimbres Indians, and their beautiful Southwest design black and white stoneware coffee mugs with Native American-influenced patterns are taken from the Cliff Dweller and Mimbres tribes’ designs and carvings.
The Cliff dweller mugs feature black and white geometric patterns inspired by the cliff dwelling Native Americans of old. The Mimbres mugs features animals in the style of Native American fetish (good luck) animals.
