18th Century Redware Shaving Mug

Yesterday a friend from New Jersey asked me to meet her for lunch and do some antiquing too. It was Side Walk Sale Day in Mullica Hill, health New Jersey this past weekend and I was really hoping to find something special, and I did!!

This is a 18th century Redware shaving mug. I was happy to see some provenance on the bottom, which says it was found by Bee Man, or is it Beeman, in May of 1965, in a town called Sandy Ridge, which is in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, and it was found in a chicken coup and sold for $5.! When I saw it I just fell in love with it. The color is beautiful, not  red, but more of a mustard color. I could not resist buying it, and offer it to my customers. There is a shaving brush that came with it, part pewter and wood, and another piece that looks like a refill. Not sure what the bristles are, but they are not horse hair, but it is made from some kind of fur, very soft.

Hope you like it.

Happy day

Carole
