A meticulously sculpted ceramic masterpiece that brings to life the chilling persona of a professional hitman. The character on the mug resonates with the infamous story of Vincent “Mad Dog” Coll, a notorious contract killer for the Italian Mafia in 1920s New York City, whose exploits have been chronicled in numerous books and Hollywood films. He is an orthodox Christian, a detail that adds a layer of complexity to his personality, with dark brown lips that depict a long history of chain-smoking cigars. The painting process was a complex blend of techniques to match the physical appearance of a post-war era breed of New York City hitmen. This mug is not just a vessel for your coffee, it's a conversation starter, a piece of art that brings a notorious character to life, making it a perfect gift for those who appreciate the intricacies of design, History, Art, and popular culture.
