These mugs are 3.5" in diameter, minus handles, x 3.5" high. Not a fan of RR, didn't vote for him, etc., but I've purged all Chinese made cookware and serving ware from my home and replaced it with USA made pieces from thrift shops and these are USA made. I've added quite a few old Victor, HLC, Buffalo, Syracuse, etc., diner mugs to my kitchen cabinets and still pick up USA made heavy porcelain diner mugs when I see them. These are not heavy and not porcelain, but are kind of cool. They are very uneven, slightly different in size, irregular, etc., but quite large. My first thought was that one would be a good replacement when I break my large breakfast coffee mug. They are marked USA and when I saw the Monmouth, IL connection I figured they were probably made by the Western Stoneware Company, but some research has shown that they were probably not made there. Guessing they probably date between 1981 and 2000. Not sure who made them if Western Stoneware did not. Any input on who made these is welcome!
