Original British 1937 Coronation Shaving Scuttle Cup of King George VI & Queen Elizabeth

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Wonderful vintage English commemorative shaving scuttle cup, colorful decoration in honor of the 1937 coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth!

A traditional shaving scuttle with a shallow holder at the top for a cake of shaving soap, and a wide-mouth spout on the side for water and brush access. Men used to fill these scuttles with boiling water from a tea kettle, and then periodically dunk their shaving brush into the spout to heat it up before swirling it around on the soap resting in the receptacle on top. Works great with soap, not at all with shaving cream, because of the little drain holes beneath the soap that keep it dry between shaves. Use cream with a traditional scuttle and all the lather drips down into the hot water.

Very good-excellent condition. No chips, no cracks or repairs. There may is a slight bit of crazing to the glaze but nothing overwhelming.
