$69.99 USD

Traditional English Hand-Crafted Quality
Our Authentic Imported Pewter Shaving Scuttle is 100% Hand-Crafted in England using time honored and traditional craftsmanship handed down from generation to generation by silversmiths who themselves rose from apprentice to master only after earning that title. This Fine Quality Scuttle artfully exhibits the epitome of the craft. Elegant yet completely functional in design. Delicate to the eye yet solidly made to serve faithfully through the years. The hand-soldered seams and handle attachment are solid and flawlessly executed. It is marked on the bottom with the maker's hallmark. Hand polished to a mirror finish.

This traditional style of shaving scuttle became popular before the turn of the 20th Century when most homes did not enjoy hot running water. The bottom chamber of the scuttle was filled with hot water from the kitchen stove and carried to the bedroom shaving stand for use. After dipping the brush into the water in the bottom chamber it was then used on the soap cake held in the perforated soap dish on top to produce a lather. The perforations allowed excess water to drain back into the lower chamber preventing the soap from becoming softened. Still a practical method of maintaining adequate hot water at hand for the shave without having to waste water and energy by continual running.

Scuttle comes with your choice of our Premium Shaving Soaps. Please specify your choice of soap scent when ordering. Takes our molded scuttle design soap 2.5" diameter, rounded bottom).

Engraving is available for this item.

Quality piece

This pewter mug is just beautiful. It is a real pleasure to look at in the morning. This classic use of scuttles was to carry hot water up to the bathroom. This piece will NOT do that. Being pewter, it quickly become too hot to pick up, and then the water cools rapidly. I use it differently. When lathering up all the "good stuff" in the soap quickly dissolves, and much of it drains down into the bowl. I allow the good stuff to accumulate, and then lather up in the bowl using that, rather than the soap up on top. Makes a superior lather.
