Starbucks City Mug Bahrain I - Pearl Monument
Previous
Next

Bahrain is an archipelag of 33 islands, the largest being Bahrain Island, at 55 km (34 mi) long by 18 km (11 mi) wide. Known for its oil and pearls.

The Pearl Monument was one of Bahrain’s most memorable landmarks. It was made up of 6 dhow (Arab sailing ships) “sails” going up into the heavens with a gigantic pearl resting on its pinnacle. The 6 sails represent the 6 Gulf countries, while the pearl represents their being united by one heritage. The Pearl Monument served as a beautiful reminder of the old days of Bahrain, when diving for pearls was the main industry in country.
Monument was destroyed on March 18, 2011, by government forces as part of a crackdown against the 2011 Bahraini uprising.

This mug is OOP, isn't it? It can't be purchased in Starbucks stores anymore wheresoever since there's the version II now, am I right?

The fact that it is no longer available will just cause this mug to grow in value over the years. There are lots of mugs no longer produced on the site, and some are worth a lot of money today.
