I've got the Swedish Gabis pitcher, but those coffee cups...

It turns out they were made by a company called Styrocup, a division of Thompson Industries, which is long gone.

It is a particular and unique design, with little ridges around the top and a raised lip like you'd see on a paper cup:

They were adorned with the UE seal in WNMHGB, but appear to be undecorated the rest of the time, except for a thin black pinstripe near the lip, and the blue-gray paint.

This could easily be blueprinted, but to what end? Even if 3D printed, it couldn't be used. It needs to be turned in metal or cast ceramic, with the appropriate decoration and coloring, of course. But how to do it?

And I wonder how many people would want a United Earth coffee cup. :/
