What do you gents think about it? I dont like it myself,but being a LE and so many collectors out there,Im sure it would be sold out pretty quick.

I don't really like it. It looks like something my grandparents would have had, sitting up on a high display shelf somewhere with the decorative plate collection. Not to demean the T&H quality, but I would predict that a number of these will end up in thrift stores and yard sales eventually.

Definitely something that should be hidden and not used.
I'm sure it will be one many products made during the Jubilee that should not have been made.

I actually have one of these in dark royal blue. They work as intended with a small brush and a small puck of soap. Another one of those YMMV things.

It's a variation on a classic style that has been around for years. I actually have an Old Foley, that a friend of mine bought for me, and it has a shape reminiscent of this. In all fairness, though, it is used for display rather than actual use. When I want to use a scuttle, I use my Robert Becker.

More Jubilee Tat!!!

There's loads of it starting to appear from every direction and it's doing my head in already.

Still, I suppose it's just about worth it as we get an extra public holiday on Tuesday in the UK and I don't have to go to work.

I'll be glad when it's all over though. Smile

I've got the blue too!

But I won't be buying the Jubilee edition... I'm hoping to acquire the Simpsons Jubilee brush however!

Personally I don't like the pictures on it. I think it's nice for collectors.
I do have the Victorian Ceramic Shaving Mug, but not using it. Just nice to have Smile

I had a similar mug a while back and as mentioned, it wasn't too practical. I don't mind the overall design - at one time it was a common nook item - but doesn't the image of the Quenn make it look rather, uh, cheezy? Tourist trinket shops come to mind. Confused

Not something that I would chose to own. It sells for $60 not including the shipping.

I've got one that has a fox hunting scene on it with horsemen and hounds. It works great as a brush warmer when I facelather.
