Silver plate shaving mug with brush

Silver plate shaving mug with brush

SKU: 1740335

Tonight’s offering from Auld Curiosities is perhaps of more interest to those who shave, and especially those who like to shave with older type implements. For those of you who can relate, we offer a silver plated shaving mug and brush, on three equidistant spaced legs with an almost cabriole shape, but very substantial feet, There is a generous handle opposing a holder for the brush (in this case very well used and worn down). The body is of course circular and the interior surface shows considerable previous use. The mug stands 4 7/8” (124mm) tall to the top of the rim and has a diameter of approximately 2 7/8” (74mm), again measured at the rim. The brush has a wooden handle and the bristle would appear to be boar bristle or something equally firm. There is an impressed makers mark on the side - difficult to read but appears to be X:Y - not listed on the standard websites.


Postage will be determined at point of sale and is a cost to the buyer. We determine costs to each item as opposed to having regional postage charges to ensure that our charges are accurate and fair.

    With every item we sell, it is our intention to take every possible care to have it delivered to you in the same condition as when it left our premises. For this reason, packaging is tailored to each item and provides the maximum protection that we consider the item requires. Any item that arrives in a damaged condition should be referred to your postal service in the first instance for assessment of their handling of the package.

Postage has now become a major cost in ecommerce so we try to strike a balance that will not unduly add excessive cost to your purchase.
