Occupational shaving mug ad copied
A 21 by 15-inch paper print advertising occupational and personalized shaving mugs is being reproduced. The color print is a reproduction of an original which first appeared in the early 1900s. It shows the various designs available from B. Stuebner's Sons, Artistic China Decorators, Brooklyn, New York. The print is titled at the top, "Decorated Shaving Cups for the Barber Supply Trade Co."
The new print was sold through a national mail order catalog. The example we saw included a wood frame.
