Conditon: Mint condition
First edition vintage collectable

set of 4 mugs

McDonalds has done countless promotions over the years. One of the most memorable is a set of four Flintstones Glass Drinking Mugs which coincided with the release of the 1994 live action movie verion of “The Flintstones”, starring John Goodman. McDonalds promoted the movie by offering a set of four mugs, each one with a with wildly original design.

Ranging in height from 3 1/4” to 4 1/2” inches tall, each mug had amazing details such as embedded fossils, bone-shaped handles, and the Flintstones logo. These are especially collectable because McDonalds allowed their own logo to be altered for the movie; a prehsistoric “RocDonalds” golden arches logo is carved into the side of each mug.

The mugs were made in both the USA and France and the country of origin is on the bottom of each mug. They’ve never been used and are in mint condition with no chips or scratches.

The mugs were sold without packaging, although McDonalds wrapped them in a small brown McDonalds food bag. The mugs are still packed in the bags just as they were sold, and are included with your order.

– Treemendous Mug – It’s shaped like a tree stump, with bark, leaves and a branch shaped handle.
– Pre-Dawn Mug – Covered in fossils such as fish scales, shells, bird footprints and more. Bone handle tied with leather straps.
– Rocky Road Mug – It’s a mug shaped like a pile of stones!
– Mammoth Mug – Probably the most unique and rare of the four mugs. It’s shaped like a giant mammoth bone, with a smaller bone handle tied with leather straps.

Photos are of of actual item. Climate controlled storage and minimally handled. Sold as is. Only the 8 pc. set of two is available.
