    Hi everyone!
    I have found plenty of stuff by this maker, but nothing of this pattern or shape. It is 4 1/4" tall x 8" from tip of handle to tip of spout x 3 7/8 across the bottom. Can't wait to find out what it really is, as I expect to feel stupid when someone tells me.....lol
    Thanks y'all!

      Very unusual... maybe tea leaves in top & add boiling water from kettle? Now I'm curious :-)

      It's a shaving mug....after more research I found it. So now I'd like to know when it was made?

      Here's one on Etsy... says from 1970s... https://www.etsy.com/listing/208289913/antique-victorian-masons-crabtree-evelyn
      I would never have guessed shaving mug :-)

      Thank you beyemvey!
      Shaving mug never crossed my mind, but like I said. I'd likely feel stupid when I found out what it really is...lol
      Thanks for the link and love as well!

      I was gonna tell you it's a shaving mug, but I see you've already beat me to it. Nice one!!!

      The area where the holes are held a round bar of soap, the mug held the warm water, the gentleman dipped the brush in, then made a lather with the soap then applied to his face.
      There are many on eBay and other sites listed as cups with teabag holders , don’t know how you’re supposed to drink from it though!
    7. maryh1956 maryh1956, 4 years ago
      I grew up in the UK (Scotland) and I think Crabtree & Evelyn, a popular soap maker, who marketed there goods in fine department stores, was established in the late 1960’s, and later had their own stores, so this can’t be older than that.
    8. maryh1956 maryh1956, 4 years ago
      Mason’s didn’t become part of the Wedgwood group until 1968, so this was made after that date

      Is that what you call parian ware?
    10. Karenoke Karenoke, 4 years ago
      Thanks for the insight maryh1956!
      I was originally thinking a succulent planter, that you watered through the holes in the top...lol. That's what I get for thinking...lol
    11. maryh1956 maryh1956, 4 years ago
      You could use it for a planter

      Not so much a mug as a shaving scuttle. Here's some helpful info: http://sharpologist.com/2014/04/shaving-mugs-scuttles.html.
    13. Karenoke Karenoke, 4 years ago
      Oh wow! Thank you tshusker!
      Any yes maryh1956, I think it would be cute with a small succulent in it. Thank you!
