Picked up a few of the old Koken/Theo. Kochs late 19th Century /early 20th Century Mugs for use in soaking my brush while I strop. I do not lather in them as I do so on my face with a tad of MdC Fougere typically daily. I rotate the mugs just to give me a bit of whimsy and tradition from a historical perspective daily. I would only add mugs in the Numbered arena in the future as I love the connotation that they were to be used for out of towners/travelers at city barbershops and Hotels of the time period. If these mugs could tell stories, oh my!

Look for "T&V" Limoges on the bottom of the mug. They were a reputable legitimate late 19th Century Early 20th Century maker of the mugs. In America, Koken and or Theo. Kochs Barber Supply Cos. are well received.
