    Description

    A John Wayne Gifted Coffee Mug Related to "The Searchers." Warner Bros., 1956. Made of ceramic, gold-painted handle, front has text reading "The Searchers," back reads "Helen / O'Connell / From / John Wayne" [Wayne's name is his facsimile signature], bottom has maker's stamps reading "Wallace / China / 2-R / Los Angeles, Calif." and "Bob Williams / 222 Occidental / Santa Ana, Calif.;" "O'Connell" being the noted 1940s-era big band singer who also made a number of appearances in film and on television shows.
    Height: 3"

    PROVENANCE:
    This mug was consigned directly by Helen O'Connell's grandson who remembers his grandmother having many famous Hollywood friends, but he does not know why Wayne would have given her this particular mug since she wasn't associated with "The Searchers." Additionally, this mug has a unique design unlike the others Wayne gave to cast and crew so this one is somewhat of a mystery.
