Session opens with specialty collection of antique occupational shaving mugs

A boxed Lavender Robot from Masudaya’s Gang of Five series will challenge an imposing Giant in Tower mechanical bank and several other coveted rarities for top-lot honors at Morphy’s June 22nd Toys, Trains & Soldiers Auction. The comprehensive 600-lot sale includes a wealth of desirable American, European and Japanese toys from the 19th through mid-20th centuries, with quality and condition being the common thread throughout.

The session will open with more than 140 antique occupational shaving mugs from the Ray and Theresa Jones collection. Ray Jones served in the U.S. Navy, and during his years of collecting he favored mugs that had a nautical theme. Among those in the auction with a marine motif are Lot 6, which features a fishing trawler; and Lot 6, which depicts a seafood wagon. Each is estimated at $1,000-$2,500. Yet another, Lot 95, is adorned with the photographic image of a paddle wheeler boat, est. $1,500-$2,500. Other highlights of the Jones collection include Lot 58, a baseball players mug, est. $1,000-$1,500; and Lot 117, an early wooden barber pole topped by an eagle, est. $1,000-$2,000.
