Anthora...the coffee cup of Grecian design.


What coffee drinker, at least in NYC, doesn't know this cup?  The Anthora has been one of the most enduring pieces of ephemera in New York City ,since the 1960's, and is still among the most recognizable. Today, Starbucks dominates the urban landscape but the Anthora will forever be in our hearts, enshrined in museums, on tourist t-shirts and now as ceramic mugs.  Check out this New York Times article to learn the cup's interesting history.
