  PRE-PATENTED, PATENTED, AND PATENT PROTECTED SHAVING MUGS
                       USED IN THE HOME

    Each patent number listed below indicates a patent application that was subsequently
issued. In each case the date when the patent was issued is shown. The first patent issued,
# 28,085, was probably never produced as an actual shaving mug. Any evidence of that
mug existing would be welcomed.
    In hindsight it is easy to see just how frivolous some of the inventive changes actually
were. During those early years the future could not be easily imagined.
    Listed below are over 120 patents issued that refer to vessels identified as mugs or
cups. That is an astonishing number. One reason for this abundance was the legislation
requiring greater sanitary considerations in barber shops. This awareness extended into
the homes as well, and inventors responded. Note invention # 793,961, marked with a red
asterisk. That invention was the first to address the new sanitary issue.
    Shown are the individual shaving mugs held in my personal collection. They are
identified in brackets as: (C) Combination, (Sc) Scuttle, and (Si) Single Compartment.
     In many cases I have said “mug production improbable”. Perhaps in some cases a
single unit was produced to accompany the patent application. It is doubtful that any of
those models still survive, but I would welcome any evidence of that being true.
    Among the joys of collecting and documenting your shaving mugs, is the opportunity
and challenge of extending your collection. In this particular case I am concentrating my
attention on acquiring mugs that bear patent information, or on those that were unmarked,
yet manufactured and issued under the protection of a known patent number. The shaving
mugs and relevant associated items issued under patent, are listed below in chronological
order.

1,782,793      11/25/1930 Patent issued. Stationary mug. Production improbable.



 The foregoing lists the Shaving Mugs, or items used for producing a lather, that could be
used for shaving. They are from before the time shaving mugs were first patented, up
until 1930. Now, in hindsight, it is readily seen that many of the patents issued were
impractical for actual use. At the time , serious problems existed that needed to be
addressed. In time, the need for strict sanitary care in barber shops abated, then ceased.

This listing is invaluable for me. With it I am able to see precisely what has already been
found, and what remains to be found, if a complete collection is to be achieved. In your
own search for mugs, this list can be of value also.

It appears that I have acquired all but one of the patented shaving mugs that were issued.

I would be very pleased to learn of any other shaving mugs, other than those shown, that
exist today.
