Gorgeous antique shaving mug that is marked on the bottom, "Genuine hand Engraving, Old Foley, James Kent, Staffordshire England, Guaranteed Detergent Proof" The underside is also stamped James Kent Longton. It measures 3&1/8 inches tall, and is 7 inches from spout tip to handle. It features a deep blue, transferware pattern of an English countryside with folks riding horses, and gathering berries(?). It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. The transferware is a bit off in places, which is not uncommon.If you look at the photo with the spout facing to the left, it looks like there is a piece if tape on the upper side of the spout. There isn't! This is under the clear glaze, so done when the piece ws manufactured. This dates to about 1900, and would be a stunning addition to any collection of antique shaving mugs, or Flow Blue.
