Earrings, pair, "Good to the Last Drop" coffee cup symbol of Maxwell House Coffee. Issued by the Maxwell House Coffee Division, General Foods Corporation?, no place (possibly Hoboken), no date, circa 1950-1970. Stamped and painted metal (white metal? plated), 15/16" high x 3/8" wide; clasp back. No maker's marks or hallmarks.
Cup painted in white with blue band; drop with red detail.
Original purpose of this pair is undetermined at present: possibly a gift premium in a promotional campaign (e.g. xx proof of purchases redeemed for the 'gift') or a present to employees or wives of executives at a banquet. The low quality of the items (i.e. not gold or silver) suggests these were probably for mass distribution.
