1851 Crystal Palace 'Mustache' Porcelain Cup/Mug SPECIAL SALE PRICE! #ON858
This wonderful souvenir from the 1851 London Crystal Palace, like all three of the items from the Crystal Palace we're offering, is handpainted and quite rare. If you will note the photo of the inside of the cup, looking over the side you can see a "shelf" for the drinker's mustache and the opening for sipping the liquid. One might think we would see these today with facial hair so popular--as it was 170 years ago. This, like the small pitcher and toothpick holder from the expo, is in remarkable condition. None of the three original Crystal Palace souvenirs has any chips, cracks or flaws.
