5 Antique Victorian Mustache Cups - Porcelain

5 Antique Victorian Mustache Cups - Porcelain
Europe - 1880-1920

To the top edge of the cup, on the inside, is a small lip of ceramics with an opening in the centre. As a result, the moustache can rest on this lip so that it does not get moist when drinking. It also prevents the coffee or tea being discoloured by the moustache. Moustache cups date from Victorian times, highlighted by the tacky and gaudy cups with sentimental inscriptions.
