Without running water and plumbing, toiletry sets in the Victorian Era were a necessity. Homer Laughlin Toiletries often included more than chamber pots, basins (bowls), and pitchers but also included mugs, mouth ewers, and vases. The lavatory area was made pretty by decorated porcelain sets. This small Antique pitcher is a brush or shaving mug. The Laughlin stamp on the bottom indicates that it was manufactured Pre- 1910. One of the prettiest and most elaborate shapes for toiletries made by Laughlin was this; the Bridal Shape which offered many patterns including this rather simple but elegant gold spattered trim. The Bridal Shape has distinctly ornate handles, an embossed scrolling pattern around the bottom and top of the pieces, and scalloped edges. A beautiful early bath (bathroom) or vanity piece, this Brush Mug is in MINT Condition. No chips, cracks, breaks, and very little of the common crazing! The mug measures 4 1/4" tall. The mouth measures 3 3/4" across. Beautiful early piece.
