Two 2001 World Trade Center Observation Deck Souvenir Mugs - Mint - Rare. These mugs were scheduled to be sent to the World Trade Center gift shop for sale there until the disastrous attacks on 9/11/01.
They were among a very limited collection of merchandise not yet delivered to WTC that was later made available for sale to the public. The mugs are in mint condition with no cracks, chips, markings or discoloration.
Mug #1 measures approximately 4" in height and 3" in diameter and is in its original window box. You will see that the mug displays a colorful painting of the Twin Towers with "World Trade Center" printed in yellow and white letters below them. The logo of City Merchandise is printed on the bottom of the mug.
The box has sharp corners and no dents or tears with bright color and graphics. Mug #2 measures 3" in height and 2 1/4" in diameter and is not in a box. It is emblazoned with a painting of the Manhattan skyline featuring the World Trade Center at twilight. "New York" is printed in purple letters around the top of the mug.
Please read the description and view the photos carefully. These are extremely rare mementos of the historic WTC buildings and the tragic events of 9/11. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
