It's an old mug, and an even older joke: "Member of the Pistol Club - Drink Till Midnight, Pistol Dawn." And so politically incorrect, showing two cowboys engaging in gun play while drunk. Back in the day, it was considered hilarious.

This is a particularly well-executed example (I'm putting on my Antiques Roadshow voice now), with good graphics, minimal crazing, and even decorated with a little gilt on the mug handle and inside the mug. Definitely worth the $5.00 I paid for it.

Don't forget to click on the image to enlarge, and see the witty names given to our two besotted cowboy characters.
