19th Century Baseball Occupational Shaving Mug

19th Century Baseball Occupational Shaving Mug

Shaving mugs were used extensively at the turn of the 20th century in barber shops across America. They held a cake of soap that was worked up into a rich lather with a bristle brush at a time when it was commonplace for men to visit barber shops for a close straight razor shave. In many barber shops, a fitted shelf held spots for the personalized mugs of its patrons. These mugs usually had the customer's name, and a hand painted illustration of the man's occupation. This is one of the finest baseball examples that we have seen. The name "Aug Fuhr" appears in gold leaf lettering. Incredible hand-painted scene of a batter at the plate appears below the name. The mug itself has no chips or cracks. The scene of the baseball batter is NRMT.
