Baseball Player Shaving MugBy

Baseball Player Shaving Mug

This new skuttle shaving mug is decorated with an early baseball player, baseballs and glove. It is white ironstone with metallic decoration. This new mug has a single drain hole in the top where the soap rests; old mugs have multiple drain holes. This example was found in a Texas department store by R. Blake Powell (author of Antique Shaving Mugs of the US and Occupational Shavings Mugs of the US).
