    The wife picked this up for me the other day at an antique shop. I think its a shave mug, at least it is now. There are no markings on it anywhere tha I can see. Just a neat addition to my up and coming den, thought I would share it with you all. 20150213_142432.jpg

    Items like that are the best! Give her the once over with some scrubbing bubbles or a mild polish. Bet it will clean up great.

    Swarden43, I think it may actually be tin but I'm not real sure. Its pretty light for its size, silver I would think would be a bit heavier. The same goes for pewter. I like it either way. Cant complain for $2 right.

    That's a pretty nice mug. Have you shaved with it yet?

    Looks good! I agree polishing and maybe a clear coat to keep shining

    So far I've really only used it to soak my brush while I'm in the shower. I may try to clean and shine it up some this weekend.

    I believe now that it is aluminum. It may not be as old as I thought but still a neat mug. I did begin to do a little polishing on it. it shined up pretty good in the area I was working on. Thats a little tough on the hands though so I'll resume the polishing again later and post a pic.
