Q: In 1996 I paid $12 for a 5-inch Donald Duck figural mug for sale at an antiques mall. The mug is in the shape of Donald’s head. The base is blue, the same color as the rim around the top of the mug. It’s marked with a copyright symbol and the words “Walt Disney Prods., Japan.” I’d like to know the mug’s age and value.

A: Walt Disney ceramic dishes were made in Japan before and after World War II, but your mug dates from after the war. The mark dates it anywhere from the 1950s to the early 1980s. It would sell today for roughly what you paid for it 16 years ago.
