This charming series was used in the cabins of West Virginia State Parks, and some of it was also sold in park gift shops. Each piece had the seal of the State of West Virginia, but select pieces (most commonly plates) also had larger images of a deer, quail or log cabin.
It was made by both Carr and McNicol China.
This is a shiny, heavy, handsome, completely utilitarian mug made by Carr China and distributed by what was then the local company, S & W China. It is about 4 3/8" wide by about 3 3/8" high. It is the ultimate and beautiful symbol of country, camp life with its wide base, graceful lines and just a bit of patina of age with overall light scuff marks. It is simply a keeper.
