Ballena Bay Artisan Pewter Shaving Mug w/ Brush Rest
Ballena Bay Pewter is a family business based in Tuscon, Arizona. Its artist founders, Karyn and Rollie Rivas, have successfully run and expanded the business for the last 43 years. All products are made in the shop in Tucson from scratch and contain NO lead.
We commissioned these gorgeous one-of-a-kind mugs with the classic wet-shaver in mind; someone with impeccable taste who cares about craftsmanship. The person who passes up mass-produced, disposable items in favor of buying unique, hand-crafted goods that last a lifetime. If you are that person, then you're sure to admire these showstoppers.
Available in both a hammered and a satin finish, these mugs are true heirloom-quality tools that will season beautifully with use and will wear the evidence of loyal service in their patina. As pewter is a very "alive" and malleable metal, perfection is not the name of the game here. They bear the signs of the artists' hands before they even arrive at our warehouse. Some people might call these imperfections flaws, we believe they add style and character and they're proof of hand-crafted excellence. (Please see the detailed photos of the two mugs we photographed.)
Each mug takes a regular (2.5") puck of our handmade Classic Brand Shave Soap in the scent of your choice. Please use pulldown menus to choose mug finish and soap scent. (Shaving brushes SOLD SEPARATELY-merely for illustrative purpose in the photos)
