This is the MOST POPULAR GIFT of all of the naval dinnerware!!! During WWII Sailors used this handle-less while standing watch at their duty station or up on the bridge sipping broth and they wrapped their hands around the cup to keep them warm. As space was always a premium this (like all of the other naval dinnerware) was also a multi-purpose and was used as a custard cup, shaving mug, egg cup. Nowadays this is an excellent gift for any current or former sailor and one they will truly appreciate and use often!
