FLASHBACK: EARLY 80′s ELVIS PRODUCTS

Mug1

The mug pictured is one of the first souvenirs produced in the early 80′s by ELVIS PRESLEY ENTERPRISES, that used my artwork. In the beginning most merchandise was produced in Japan but through the years that has changed. This particular mug measures 3 ¼” with a diameter of 2 ¼” with a gold band around the lip and one that runs down the middle of the handle. It is the only example of this product that I have.
The original art, titled, “Satisfaction”, was part of my first book , “Newly Discovered Drawings of Elvis”( Bantam, 1979 ) and the original is in the private collection of Actor, Writer, James Ritz.
