Our company manufactures and sells authentic replicas of the iconic 1917 mugs from which Marines drank their last stateside mess hall coffee before  embarking for Europe and the First World War.

In France, at Belleau Wood in 1918, the original Marine Devil Dogs shattered a German Army advance thus saving Paris, protecting France from defeat, and contributing critically to the counterattack that ended the First World War on 11 November 1918.
