MAYFLOWER DOWNYFLAKE DONUTS OPTIMISTS CREED COFFEE MUG

mayflower downyflake donuts mug

This fun vintage Mayflower Downyflake Donuts coffee mug has the original logo with the Optimists' Creed: As you ramble on thru life brother whatever be your goals, keep your eye upon the doughnut and not upon the hole. Mayflower, which first opened in New York City in 1931, originated the now common spelling of "donut" during World War II. We have also heard that this logo was a painted wall mural inside the Downyflake Donut Shop in Melbourne, Australia. It was manufactured by the Sterling China Company of East Liverpool, Ohio in the same high quality as all Sterling vintage restaurantware. It measures 5.5 inches tall. We sold this mug at auction and bidders went do-nuts over it. We aren’t really sure if they were Mayflower / Downyflake donut advertising collectors, or just folks who love donuts and that adorable quote. In any case, this particular post continues to be popular on atomicspacejunk.com two years after the original cup sold! These mugs are pretty rare, but check below for other Mayflower Donuts collectibles…one of these great mugs may just show up, too!
