    I need help finding something. I'm looking for a replacement for a vintage coffee mug/cup. Some of you will remember them from the old drugstore cafes from the past. It looks similar to this but with a ceramic as opposed to glass insert.

    I found it years ago at a Goodwill but now the insert is chipped and cracked, accidentally dropped it in the sink when cleaning it.

    Thanks, it has Kirk-Stieff USA on the bottom of the ceramic cup. An initial search of the site (and on the internet in general) gives me nothing about this cup.
    Okay I did find the listing on their site but the item is out out stock. There has to be some generic descriptive name for these types of cups. I remember seeing them all over when I was a kid so there has to be many other similar types out there.

    That cup looks like a cool trophy. It reminds me of the Stanley Cup for some reason.

    Quick aside. I really do think your thread title would qualify as a a name for a Monty Python episode. I just had to come in and check out the thread.
