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.
