I see lot of Silver plate on my travels...so for something to catch my eye it has to be really special. This exquisite shaving mug is just that. Made in the mid 1800's by Atkin Brothers of Sheffield it is beautifully made and beautifully engraved. There are no repairs but some minor scratching that you would expect and want in an authentically old piece. There are vignettes both sides and only one has monogram...I can make out JAD. The other side is blank....(ready for the next owners initals). You know they say what do you buy man who has everything..well how about an antique shaving mug...that is still able to be used every day if you want. It is great display piece if you chose too. In terms of size it stands 8cm high and including the handle and spout its 16cm wide. The only thing would mention in the way of condition is that the top bowl of the mug seems tiny bit flat on one side..it may have been dropped at some times...it minor and does not effect the use or beauty of the piece. It is fully marked on the base as photographed. Please see all my photographs as they form part of my description Also please do ask questions rather than make assumptions, will answer any query promptly and happily!!!
