In the very early 1900's, wealthy men went to the same barber for a trim or a shave on a regular basis. It was common for these men to have their own mugs, kept at the barber shop. This one belonged to stone mason, or brick layer, "James Fottinger" This mug was made in France, and marked, "GDA" on the bottom. It was more than likely painted here for Mr. Fottinger. His name is painted in gold leaf, and there are also 3 gold painted accent stripes. These stripes show paint wear, and it looks as though a 1/2 inch piece was dinged, and touched up. There are no other chips, but there is a tight, old hairline on the back side, that you can see in the photos. This does not effect the stability of the mug and it will hold water. It measures 3&1/2 inches tall, and is 3&1/2 inches in diameter (not including the handle). The image is highly detailed, and is 100%. The low price reflects the flaws. Circa 1910.
