The Rugby Player Mug: D Milam

A unique historical occupational shaving mug depicting a rugby player kicking a ball. The player is dressed in a uniform typical for the turn of the century. Very nice detail of the player's hat, socks and distinctive ball. 

The name "D. Milam" is in gilt below the painted scene. Gold gilt floral decoration frames the scene on both sides. 

The mug is slightly over 3.5" in height, 3.5" width. "Bavaria" and "210" are on the bottom of the mug.
