Victoria Ironstone Porcelain Handle Scuttle Shaving MugCobalt Blue Willow Pattern ~ Excellent Condition ~ DESCRIPTION: is a great shaving mug in the handled scuttle mug shape. It has the Blue Willow cobalt blue transfer ware pattern. This has a great looking curved handle which gives it an even more unique look. This shape was quite popular during the turn of the 20 th century but this piece is not that old. The shaving brush was put on the top of the mug and the soap and water would drain down from the three holes on the top and then the soapy water could be poured out. We acquired this at an estate sale over 15 years ago so I do not know exactly how old this piece is. It is marked on the bottom with the Victoria Ironstone mark. From what I have been told this is not an English import item so I do not know w it was produced or who made it. If you are a collector of unique shaving mugs, scuttle mugs or Blue Willow transfer ware this will make a great addition to your collection.

DIMENSIONS: This piece stands approximately 4" in height. It is about 7" in length by 3" across. The base is about 3-1/4" wide.
