Fraternal or Occupational shaving mug, c. 1900. Hand painted in black and white and gold, a tent with gold star above, and a man enters the tent. The tent is shown against a map of the world. The acronym A.O.T.M. flanks the star. I have no idea what this stood for in 1900. It could be Ancient Order....... Or it could mean what it means today, which is "argument of the month", which refers to debating clubs and fraternal orders. This certainly looks like it could be a symbol of some fraternal organization. The symbol is surrounded by a gold wreath. It is personalized for the owner C.A. Stinson. This antique shaving mug is fine white porcelain by T & V Limoges, France, as marked on the bottom. Normal size and shape for a shaving mug, height 3.75 inches. Condition is absolutely perfect, just minimal wear to the gold. 90% of the gold is bright and intact. Interior is clean. If you collect antique shaving mugs, this one is visually interesting in it's black and white paint. Researching the subject matter will be interesting.
