This especially nice old shaving cup is fashioned from tinned sheet iron with die struck soldered in bottom and removable cover insert. The cup stands approximately 4 inches high and measures 4 ¼ inches across its base tapering to a 3 5/8 inch diameter mouth. The cup sports a razor compartment and lid is designed to hold the brush upright in the lather and ready for the next shave. Though the die struck bottom is more common to the later 1860s and on, the die striking technology did exist in the Civil War period though it was yet to be commonly used. The cup has Civil War vintage potential but we’d be more comfortable calling the piece Indian War period. All in nice shape with no condition issues, this will be an especially nice item for the tin enthusiast. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !
