History fan? Political junkie? Republican? Collector of interesting pottery? Really into the year 1970 for whatever reason? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you're going to LOVE this item! Introducing the Frankoma Pottery 1970 GOP Elephant Mug. A bold and beautiful representation of the Republican Party's animal mascot, with the curled trunk working as the handle. This cup proclaims the year of 1970 on one side, while representing GOP on the other. The bottom, featuring a rough area to prevent sliding, is manufacturer stamped with FRANKOMA, as well as U.S. PAT #. Is this cup dishwasher, oven & microwave safe? Well according to the Frankoma website: "Regardless of age, Frankoma dinnerware should first be inspected for chips and crazing. Frankoma items in excellent condition can then be used in the oven and dishwasher. Regarding microwave usage, we recommend using most Frankoma pieces only for reheating food for short periods of time only. We do not recommend microwave cooking for extended durations." Does Frankoma dinnerware have lead in it and is it safe to use? According to the Frankoma website: "Generally speaking, most Frankoma dinnerware made prior to the year 2000 contained lead. After that year, the US government banned leaded glazes in dinnerware. Our opinion is that older Frankoma dinnerware containing lead is safe to use as long as it is in good condition with no chips or crazing." All that said, for safety and care of item reasons, I am selling this item FOR DISPLAY & COLLECTING PURPOSES ONLY. I would personally not advise using this as an actual vessel for food or drink, and would advise keeping it out of ovens, microwaves and dishwashers. That being said, if you choose to use this item for reasons other than display/collecting, you do so at your own risk. PICTURES NOTE: While I did my best in photographing this item, they did not come out perfectly representing its appearance. The color on the actual mug appears a bit lighter and paler than in the pictures. Also in the pictures, the item's color appears to have some places a bolder shade than other places. This is mostly a lighting effect, with the item's color being fairly consistent throughout. Please keep all of this in mind when deciding to purchase. Thank you.
