Bonanza was one of the most loved shows on TV for years. The Cartwright house that was featured on the show was located near Lake Tahoe Nevada. The house and the surrounding area was turned into a theme park that operated from 1967 to 2004. Sadly, the theme park is now closed and any souvenirs such as this tin cup will never be produced again.
I was lucky enough to visit the Ponderosa in 1971. At the gift shop, we all purchased cups, t-shirts, and various other items. I purchased 6 of the cups but can only now find 2 of them. The others are around here somewhere and as I find them I will list them.
This listing is for the cup you see in my photo. It has some dark spots as you should be able to see in my photos. Its almost 40 years old, so that’s understandable I guess.
Buyer to pay delivery charges from Northern California of $3.75. Insurance suggested. Seller does combine shipping on multiple purchases unless items are too large to fit in a single box.
Unless otherwise noted, all items in my listings come from estate sales, garage sales, or various auctions. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
