My traditional shaving scuttle collection

Well here are most of them in all their glory, just under 50 traditional wet shaving scuttles (in England there are often called shaving mugs). And the funny thing is that I don’t want them, well at least not most of them. They were bought at a time of great enthusiasm, but I don’t use them because for me face lathering works best. So they are up for grabs, preferably as swaps for something I would like and use.

They are are English china (with the odd exception) without major chips or cracks. But these are used, vintage items and their condition may reflect this
