Collection MHS (unaccessioned) Cob Cottage
Description L -Yellow sticker number 40: Very old shaving mug, 3 inches high and in good condition. Floral design on white, straight sided. No brand. Nancy Farnell says it was found in the collection and would have been a gift.

This is possibly the shaving mug with a white, pink and green floral design, numbered 920, in the Tobacconist shop in Beavertown when a list was compiled sometime in 1981 or 1984 after a break in. It was subsequently brought into the Museum storeroom. As it is now down in Cob Cottage I am unable to see if there is #920 on it (Jenny Pierson 28 January 2009). No #920 when photographed on 26 February 2013, but a very clear 1990/163.

Lent to Marlborough Vintage Farm Machinery Society on 23 January 2013 for their farm cottage.
