Was looking at a later made Old Spice shaving mug.
Has the 'Recovery' and 'Grand Turk' ships on it (so that's mid '70 - '92 ish).
I have used a wee bowl before but maybe this mug would be better for lathering? It has nice wee ridges in the base to help whip up a lather.
Anyone used one of these mugs?
These are the smallest Old Spice mug (hold about 3.5oz soap puck).
Waste of time, or (at best) just a wee 'treasure' to have in the den?

Not meant for lathering as such. The ridges are designed to hold a puck of soap in place. Lather on top of the soap. Same idea as a MWF dish.

Oh...the penny drops! Of course.
See, you guys are so handy to have around.
So it's pretty much as useful as my old coffee mug?
Except it looks so cool anyway.
Would maybe need a lid to stop soap drying out?
I tend to change my soap around every week or so.

I have had a dozen or so, they are pretty cool bits of history.
I gave most away, they are great if you use soap that size, many soaps are not this size.
