Oh, the moustache cup! How sad we are about the demise of these spectacular drinking vessels. They truly are a testament to Victorian invention.
Popular during the late 19th century, these cups were designed with a unique feature: a small guard or ledge built into the cup's rim, which was intended to keep a gentleman's moustache dry while he sipped hot beverages. Because let’s face it, nobody likes soggy whiskers. A well-groomed moustache was considered a sign of a distinguished and refined gentleman. Rightly so, we say.
As facial hair trends evolved and moustaches fell out of fashion, the use of moustache cups sadly declined, cropping up nowadays only as curiosities and charming relics of a bygone era.
And so, in a world that often overlooks the art of mustache preservation, we find ourselves lamenting the loss of this quirky and genteel invention.
