Numbered Shaving Mugs

Numbered Shaving Mugs were mugs that a new barber would order when opening their shop and would be used for customers who had not purchased a shaving mug of their own. They are simple mugs that feature a number on the front so that the customer would know they weren’t sharing their mug with others. Numbered mugs typically would be in sets from 20 to 30 in a small shop, but some busy locations had shaving mug sets numbered up to 100!
