Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this rare Blue and White Spongeware Shaving Mug in the Drape and Tassel Pattern. It is also called the Fir Tree Pattern for the decoration's resemblance to upside down fir trees.
Dating around 1890 to 1910, this set is rare.
The pitcher has a graceful form with bulbous and paneled body that narrows to a prominent footer, and a fancy handle. It is decorated with an embossed drape with four tassels going all the way around that are accented with blue sponging. Stands 3 3/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. An 1/8" nibble on the footer. Otherwise as made.
Ships double-boxed, insured, and FREE
