Antique Large Hand Painted Porcelain Scuttle Shaving Mug

This antique scuttle shaving mug is a delightful piece and difficult to find, at least in my area. It is white with gold trim around the top and leaves just below the mouth of the scuttle. It has a hand painted pink rose on the front. The back is plain.

There is initials on the bottom, but other than that, no markings that I can see. It is in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or crazing. This is a marvelous piece that has survived the test of time.

Measurements are approximately 4 inches in height, 7 inches from front of scuttle to back of handle. The soap dish in the top measures approximately 3.75 inches in diameter. The mouth of the heart-shaped scuttle is approximately 3 x 2 inches.

Wouldn't this be a marvelous gift to give the man or woman who still uses a safety razor. It would also make a great addition to any shaving mug collection.

Scuttle mugs were first used in the beginning of the 19th century. The first patent for a scuttle mug dates to 1867.

Scuttle mugs were popular. Hard soap was placed in the soap dish portion of the shaving mug. The holes allowed the water to drain off the soap and the excess water was poured off through the mouth of the scuttle. When the person was finished shaving, the shaving brush was placed handle first into the scuttle for drying.
