The Riddle of the Moustache Tea Cup
We’ve been searching for some quality antique moustache tea cups for a while now so when we came across this one in a tiny shop on Golborne Rd in London we were very excited.
Moustache tea cups were apparently invented by Harvey Adams in the 1830s to allow moustached gentleman to sip their tea without getting their manicured facial hair wet. Pure genius! This specimen, however, has a spout the like of which we’ve never seen on a teacup before. Can anyone shed some light? Is it indeed another kind of moustache tea cup?
