The photo number 8 shows examples of mugs produced at the glass factory "Vosstanie" in 1937 - 1938. Mugs have an original and beautiful pattern, different from the mugs of other glass factories. The second half of the 30s gives us the largest variety of shapes and patterns of beer mugs in the USSR. But gradually it will decrease until it comes to almost two forms - “Bar catering” and “Zhamchiki”.

There is also a pair for this mug in a volume of 0.25 liters.
