Giles' Coffee Mug From Buffy and the Vampire Slayer

Giles' Coffee Mug From Buffy and the Vampire Slayer
Do you sit up and take notice when a coffee mug or a coffee shop shows up in the movies or on your favorite television program? Many people do and sometimes those movie props go on to become quite well known and even sought after.

Recently an online friend told me that she gained a new appreciation for coffee mugs after she saw Giles of the television program Buffy and the Vampire Slayer drinking from a green Jadite mug like the one shown here.

As it turns out, the mug Giles used is a heavy vintage Fire-King Jadite cup that is sometimes known as restaurant ware.

As a mug fan who tries hard not to increase her collection regularly and as a seller of mugs on eBay, I thought it was pretty cool to see the Fire-King mug shown here listed on eBay by eBay seller deztiques.  Not only is it the mug Giles used but it is a vintage piece that has NEVER been used and that actually still wears the original Fire-King sticker. That is pretty unusual and makes this particular mug particularly valuable. However, if you want to own the mug that Giles used, there are plenty of used mugs available that are quite a bit more affordable.


Have you spotted any mugs in your favorite movies and television programs?  Do tell!

See you
in the kitchen!

  1. Wow! It is funny that the actual mug got sold. Yes, I did notice it - because I had been educated about these mugs by you. I inadvertently became a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, and saw this mug being used by the pedantic - yet secretly bad boy - Giles many times.

  2. I think my husband used to watch Buffy when we were first married. Could it have been on 20 years or more ago? I'm almost tempted now to watch the show just to see the mug!
