This is an early and pretty rare 1930s "pie-eyed" Mickey Mouse tin mug I found. It is in awful shape but it still makes me smile. I believe it was made in Germany and sold by the Richard G. Krueger Inc, N.Y. (this is the only one I found online https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vtg-antique-mickey-mouse-porcelain-1695969992 ). Krueger was a dolls and toys manufacturer that also sold many Mickey and Minnie hand painted enamelware items like child's chamber pots, cups and mugs. The designs were kind of rough but had a nice relief that can be seen in the second picture. The size of the mug is 4 inches in diameter by 3,5" high.
