JaXon China was Jackson China's very early brand, made at its Fall Creek, Penn., plant between 1914 and 1930, according to Jim Strano, author of the book on Jackson. It tends to be large and heavy ware and is very hard to find in anything but white or green-lined decorations. It also tends to be more be more crudely manufactured compared to what we think of as Jackson's usual quality - rustic might be a kinder word!
But JaXon in the hand has incredible appeal precisely because of its heft and plain design. In many ways it exemplifies the strength and durability of restaurant ware, blemishes and all.
These mugs are approximately 4 1/2 inches wide, including the handle, by 3 1/2 inches high. What's very interesting about this pair is that they each carry a different JaXon backstamp, with the one that says only JaXon serving as an explanation for why I persist in spelling it that way!
These mugs all have medium use marks and show a variety of manufacturing glaze drips, skips and creases inside; one has a small ding in the foot. Nevertheless, they have a lifetime of wear left in them and can be used daily and put through the dishwasher. They typify early 20th century diner china.
If these are purchased one at a time, naturally I'll send the one first that seems in the best condition. If you'd prefer a certain backstamp, however, please make that request when you check out and I can confirm whether it's available.
