This large egg cup (3 1/4" wide by 3 1/8" high) has the Purple Cow Coffee Shops logo on a Shenango IncaWare tan body. It is in excellent condition, though the Purple Cow decal seems a bit faded as compared to others we've seen. There is also a small spot about 1/4" in diameter, that didn't completely receive the shiny glaze. There is no difference in color, just in shine.
The Albert Pick Hotels, located primarily in the Midwest in mid-20th century, were home to the Purple Cows.There were more than 20 hotels in the chain, and at least half of them had the coffee shops.
