    Mary Blair Hand-Painted Coffee Mug (c. 1950s-60s). When her husband entered the Navy during World War II, Mary Blair (1911-1978) moved in with fellow Disney artist Retta Scott. These two very artistic ladies became lifelong friends This is a rare one-of-a-kind ceramic coffee mug that was hand-painted and glazed as a gift to Retta Scott's son Ben. Mary painted a woman on a blue horse in her distinctive style, with the name "Benjie" on one side of the mug, with her signature on the bottom. Coffee mug is approximately 3.5" high by 5" wide. This is one of the most unusual and unique Mary Blair pieces we have seen! Fine condition. From the Retta Scott Archives.
