This beautiful scuttle from Dirty Bird Pottery just arrived and it a perfect size for me. As you can tell it has no handle and is very compact being only 3" across and 1.75" high (inner bowl). I will use it to keep the brush warm for face lathering although I did experiment mixing lather in the bowl. Works great. The original intent for these bowls is for travel purposes but this baby is not going anywhere.

Jerry, I can't tell, is it a 1 or 2 piece scuttle? Is the inner bowl attached?

She's awful perdy. Wink

I just used mine for the first time a half hour ago. Love at first lather. I have the regular size, and it's a good performer -- but takes up a lot of counter space. The travel scuttle is compact and, as you say, just right. Certainly it will make a good brush scuttle for face latherers, but it worked great for me just now lathering in the scuttle. I used T&H cream (too much) and a Vie-Long 13061 (a tad too big). So I had lather climbing over the edges, of course. It will work with a medium-large sized brush, but smaller ones will clearly work better for lathering in the bowl. I'll keep tinkering.

I got the berry and blue, but yours looks awesome too.

One piece Bob. Has a nice large spout to put water in. Julie does great work but there is a wait to have a piece made as she can't keep up with demand. I had to wait one month. Agony to the max and to top it off I should have gotten the scuttle yesterday but the Post Office sent it to the wrong city and it took them another day to figure it out. But at least I got it undamaged.

Oh thanks Jerry. Now I have to get one to match my 1.5 DB. I could sure use one of those in about two weeks. But, a hotel coffee cup will have to do.

Very nice.

Two weeks Johnny try about a month. Its great for travel but mine is staying at home. When you consider the Moss scuttle cost about $100 or more delivered the Dirty Bird is a bargain.

Yeah, She is always pretty busy, but she always makes the best stuff. I'm glad it's 1 piece.

I have samples of her earlier 2piece brush scuttles, and it was a bit of a PITA.

I like it! It looks very, very nice!
But not for travel - if I had one, I would use at home! Smile

I've been mulling over a scuttle quite a bit the last few weeks and I think I've about narrowed it down to a Dirty Bird 1.5. I might wait till next winter though since it's been in the 60's here the last few weeks.

Once you buy one, you will use it everyday. A nice warm lather, even during the summer, is hard to beat.

And, I highly recommend the DB 1.5 and I also recommend getting the ridges.

That brush scuttle is very attractive. I just have full size scuttles (a Becker, a Moss, and a Georgetown, with a Dirty Bird 1.5 on the way), but I might have to think about adding a smaller version. They seem to have a sort of panache that the large ones lack.

that BLUE SRD 1 pce scuttle has been in my sights for quite a while... it's always OOS, and expensive to ship to Canada though.

I don't have an SRD scuttle, but I do have one of their lathering bowls listed above those scuttles, and it is a quality piece. It's all I used until I got my DB 1.5
