The Gibson 24 oz Mug, formerly known as the Gibson Tankard, was our very first mug design. My sister, Lauren, convinced my father sometime in the summer of 1978 that we needed to add such a drinking vessel to our then, rather thin product line. Lauren created the pattern for the handle which is quite beautiful and unique. We had an old wooden chuck in the shop already which was suitable for the body and the rest, as they say, is history. These Mugs have always been numbered and we have kept a register of each owner

This mug graced the cover of our 1979 catalog. Charles Hull of the Worshipful Company of Pewterers, London summed the design up best in a note to my father when he said, “the design of your mug is straightforward, elegant simplicity, a trait sore missed in English pewter today.”
