This auction is for an Antique United Mine Workers of America Occupational Porcelain Shaving Mug with marks on the base C.T. Germany.

PLEASE VIEW ALL PHOTOS, READ AUCTION DSCRIPTION, TERMS, SHIPPING FEES & ASK A LOT OF QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING! Paypal Only Payment is due within 3 days after the close of auction. You will receive an automated ebay notice on the 4th day. If you have a (0) feedback, please email before bidding or we will cancel your bid. This has been an ongoing problem because either the bidder cannot be identified, non-payment, or they are no longer registered bidders after our auction ends.

  This shaving mug appears to be very old, which depicts hands shaking with crossed shovels and picks on each side of the hands with a floral wreath surrounding the image. The colors are turqoise or aqua and black. We are not experts on occupational shaving mugs, so please make your own evaluation. There is a tight, tight ageline that is located above the wreath and extends just past the top of the handle, this does not detract from displaying and there are NO loose sections, separations or chips to this area, handle is secure.  There are tiny traces of gilt gold, which most of the gold is missing. Due to the conditions stated, this shaving mug is being Sold "As Is". There are minor factory imperfections, minor surface scratches and minor surface dirt, which this mug will  need a light cleaning, and has wear and usage that is consistant with its age. Have found no visible chips, replacements or repairs. Measures 3.75 inches high, 3.5 inches across the opening and 3.25 inches across the base. We found the shaving mug at a local shop. This shaving mug will display beautifully or enhance a collection. There is a lot of glare from the lighting and camera or scanned image which the colors are not true.

This Antique Occupational United Mine Workers of America will be Sold "As Is" and all sales are final. Please view all photos and ask a lot of questions before bidding.

We have been long time collectors and have purchased our items from yard sales,  flea markets, auctions, estate sales, antique malls and stores. Also, we go trash pimping (dumpster diving). Family, friends and strangers have given us stuff to avoid from placing their items out on the trash. The reason that we have included this information within our auctions, is that the items that we are selling may have slight odors, not being offensive, but a young person told us that "Antiques smell like Old People", well we are happy and old and No we don't smell, but some of these old things may have a slight smell with wear, tear and usage. They are not MINT nor PERFECT, which we do not like to use these terms. We are not experts but know how to look things up in a book, internet, etc. Well, we hope that you will understand. We will try to describe our items to the best of our ability.

All items will be SOLD "As Is".

So please ask a lot of questions before bidding. We may not always be able to answer your questions immediately but we will try to answer them in a timely manner, due to other activities that we may be involved in.
