R2-D2 Ceramic 2D Relief Mug By Wesco
Posted by Dustin on December 30, 2012

Another ceramic piece added to the archives today. This time it is a 2D relief mug by Wesco. The 2D relief didn't quite line up with the printed graphics as you'll see in the photos. This was the best one my friend could find. Definitely an issue with quality control coming out of that factory. Still a very cool piece to add to the collection! Imported from the U.K.
