Description

I love this find! This is a woman's shaving mug most likely circa late 1800s. I believe the floral design on both sides, which is worn, is a transfer. There is scroll work on the china, gold trim and a very detailed handle. An amazing piece for any collection.

These differ from mustache cups, which were used to protect a gentleman's mustache from the cup's contents. This shaving mug has a partition with holes to hold a soap cake and allow for water drainage.


According to The Journal of Antiques & Collectibles, the shaving mug heyday was between the years of 1870 and 1920. Decorated mugs such as this one were the most plentiful, and it was not unusual for a man to have a shaving mug with what might be considered feminine decorations like flowers or birds.


Item measurements: 3" tall x 5" wide (including handle)

In excellent vintage shape.
