The World's most famous paper cup, crafted in ceramic. 

In the early 1900s, Greek immigrants in the city opened a slew of coffee shops and operated numerous food carts.  In 1963, the Sherri Cup Company created a takeout coffee cup specifically for these Greek restauranteurs, and the "Anthora" (from the Greco-Roman "amphora," which means "ancient container"), better known as the Greek coffee cup, was born.  - From Superlative City by Cynthia M.
