HERE IS A RARE AND UNUSUAL ANTIQUE, VICTORIAN, LADIES HAND PAINTED PORCELAIN SHAVING MUG, OR CUP, IN ITS ORIGINAL FITTED CASE.

THE FITTED CASE OR BOX HAS THE HINGED LID WITH ORIGINAL, ORNATELY DESIGNED, BRASS HINGES AND CLASP. THE TOP OF THE BOX HAS A BEAUTIFUL VICTORIAN CELLULOID PORTRAIT OF A LADY IN HIGH FASHION AND STYLE OF THE PERIOD. THE CELLULOID BORDER AROUND THE PORTRAIT HAS AN EMBOSSED FLORAL, LEAF, SCROLL AND BEAD DESIGN HIGHLIGHTED IN BLACK AND GOLD ON A BLUE BACKGROUND.

THE SIDES AND BASE OF THIS CASE ARE COVERED IN A BLUE BACKGROUND PAPER BEARING THE SAME BLACK AND GOLD FLORAL, LEAF AND SCROLL DESIGN AS THE TOP.

THE INSIDE OF THE CASE OR BOX IS LINED AND TUFTED IN A GOLD EMBOSSED FABRIC. IT HAS A ROUND HOLDER FOR THE CUP OR MUG AND A HOLDER FOR THE BRUSH. THE CUP "RING" HAS A CUT-OUT FOR THE HANDLE.

THE SHAVING MUG OR CUP IS TRANSLUCENT PORCELAIN WITH A SWIRL PATTERN AROUND THE BASE, AN EMBOSSED FLORAL AND SCROLL PATTERN AROUND THE TOP AND HANDLE. THE HAND PAINTED FLORAL, LEAF AND STEM DESIGN APPEARS ONLY ON THE FRONT OF THE CUP. IT HAS GOLD TRIM ON THE BRUSH LEDGE, HANDLE AND RIM OF THE CUP. THE BRUSH LEDGE HAS FIVE DRAIN HOLES.

THE CUP OR MUG MEASURES 2 INCHES TALL WITH A DIAMETER OF 3 1/4 INCHES. THE CASE MEASURES 6 3/4 INCHES LONG AND 6 INCHES WIDE AT THE BASE. THE COVER/TOP/LID MEASURES 6 INCHES LONG AND 5 INCHES WIDE. THE BOX/CASE IS 3 1/2 INCHES TALL. THERE ARE NO MARKS ON THE CUP OR BOX AS FAR AS MAKER OR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN.

CONDITION REPORT: THE ORIGINAL BRUSH IS GONE. THE MORE COMMONLY FOUND MENS BRUSHES ARE TOO LONG FOR THE CASE. THE CASE SHOWS WEAR AROUND THE OUTSIDE EDGES. THE FABRIC SHOWS SOIL FROM USE. THE CUP SHOWS LOSS OF GOLD TRIM ON THE RIM. DESPITE THESE FLAWS---CONSIDERING ITS AGE, LATE 1800's---THIS IS A RARE FIND IN UNUSUALLY GOOD CONDITION.
