This is an early Shulton Old Spice shaving mug. The cream colored mug has the Ship Friendship on the front in blue along with the words Old Spice in red. There is also a banner beneath the ship with Ship Friendship imprinted. The mug is squat and unassuming, measuring 3 inches tall, about 3 3/8 inches in mug diameter and 4 3/4 inches from the handle across the mug. There are no chips or cracks and only a minimal amount of crazing. The mug has rough construction with little pits and dents in the clay under the glaze and one side of the opening of the mug is a little thicker than the other. The base of the mug has impressed writing.....Made in USA and American....also in the center of the base is HULL. The impress is light and pretty hard to read.

This is a charming shaving collectible in very good condition for its age and purpose. The graphics are very good and the mug has lots of character because of its rough construction. The mug is clean and was well cared for by its former owner. It is a great addition to a shaving mug collection.

A.E. Hull made these mugs from 1938-early 1950's and in 1948 Wheaton Glass began to make the custard glass mugs for Shulton.
