Butcher Occupational Shaving Mug

Description

Back in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when a gentleman needed a shave, he would visit his local barbershop, where the barber kept each customer’s shaving mug, inscribed with his name and often decorated with an image related to his occupation, in a cabinet. This example, embossed “Germany” on the bottom, is inscribed “D. Welsch” in gold above an image of a steer surrounded by meat processing tools, indicating that he was a butcher. The shaving mug measures 4 inches tall by 3 3/4 inches in diameter and is in good condition with a reattached and restored handle and wear on the gold trim around the rim and base. 17337-81UP
