click for more pictures for item
This is a fine old piece of shaving/barber shop memorabilia. It is an oversized mug that has "Father" printed on the front of the mug. It is probably from the 1940s or '50s. This is a beautiful cup. It says "Japan" on the bottom of the mug. The mug has lots of crazing that shows that it is old. The crazing adds character and charm to an older piece. There are flowers on the front of cup. The mug measures 3 3/4" tall x 6" wide including the handle. The shaving brush measures 5 1/2" tall.
The mug is trimmed in gold. The gold doesn't show much wear. Very good condition. "Father" is in gold. There are a couple of very small chips around the top rim. Enlarge the photo and examine carefully. This is a great collectible just to display or actually use. The brush has bushy bristles---NICE CONDITION. Wooden handle with a goldish band. The top end of the handle is a little worn but still in very good shape. It is old and has been used.
