Chewbacca mug and Peter Mayhew autographed tag from the promotion of George Lucas’ 1977 action fantasy film Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.
Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot (Harrison Ford), a Wookiee (Peter Mayhew) and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire's world-destroying battle station, while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) from the mysterious Darth Vader (Dave Prowse).
Limited edition mugs were made by sculptor Jim Rumph and produced by California Originals in early 1978. The mug is clay painted brown on the outside and dark blue on the rim and inside, the base features text which reads “Star Wars 1977 20th Century Fox Film Corp 27”, “Rumph! Calif. Originals” and on the back “Star Wars Chewie”. The mug comes with a product tag that has been autographed by actor Peter Mayhew in green pen. The mug and tag show minimal signs of wear from use, the mug shows light discolouration and dirt and the tag shows light water damage. Considering the age of the items they remain in a very good condition.
Materials: Clay, Paper, Man-Made Woven Fibres.
