Vintage Orphan Annie Ovaltine Mug with Unusual Jumpin’ Grasshoppers! Phrase - image 1 of 8

This old cream colored plastic Ovaltine mug features Orphan Annie and Sandy on the front. Orphan Annie is on the run as she says, in comic strip balloon format; Jumpin’ Grasshoppers! You Just Can’t Help Runnin’ For More of Anything as Good as Ovaltine eh, Sandy? and Sandy's reply of course is; ARF! This is unlike the more common phrases like Didja Ever Taste Anything So Good As Ovaltine? and Leapin’ Lizards! It was made by Beetleware in the 1930's and on the bottom it reads; Manufactured Exclusively for The Wander Co.,Chicago - Makers of Ovaltine.

The child’s cup measures almost 3” high and about 2 15/16” in diameter at the top excluding the handle and 2 9/16” at the base. The bakelite plastic is in good condition with minimal wear and no damage. The decal is in very good condition with minimal wear.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
