The Anthora Coffee Cup
These cups used to be everywhere. When I was little I wasn't allowed to drink coffee because of growth-stunting reasons or something and so I would get steamed milk in one of these cups from the Hungarian Pastry Shop and I felt so grown up. What do kids have now? Starbucks cups? That's terrible. The Anthora cup used to be everywhere, just like the classic Greek diner, which is also a disappearing entity, but they're not so common anymore. The design has stayed alive in tchotchkes like an Anthora-themed change purse and other novelty items, but it's not the same. Nothing is the same.
