Awesome. Brilliant. You should buy a 1,000 and sell 'em from your garage. What Fool wouldn't want to start his/her day with that?

I wish I kept mine. I think it will be worth more than i paid. I am afraid these were made in this century. Tell you why. We did not have English in 60s and 70s last century.

"Study Hard, And Earn More". First, it is English. Second, it is not right. The most famous slogan after translating to English is "Good Good Study, Day Day Up". It means if you study hard and well, you will go up every day. Hahaha, This is so funny.

You sure you want to drink from that mug? 

I'd be afraid they've used lead in the paint or some other toxic material.

Instead of painting, the mug is coated with enamel, made by fusing powdered glass to a substrate in firing. The design mimicks the 1970's style, however, the mug apparently was produced in the late years. it is an antique fake, which is very common in the flea market.
