U.S. Navy Officer and Enlisted Water Tumbler were used as personal hygiene items in a ship's head or washroom. These water tumblers were clipped into chrome plated or nickel alloy metal wall mounting brackets for easy use, removal and cleaning. These were used from the mid to late 19th century and possibly even up to WWI; certainly during the 1880's thru 1910 during the Spanish American War and Great White Fleet era.

This water tumbler was part of a matching porcelain personal hygiene set which included an amphora-like water pitcher, soap dish, wash basin and slop jar which was provided to senior officers in their private staterooms.

The Pirate's Lair Exclusive!
We all romanticize about the mystique of these antique trunks. The possible owners and travels that each steamer trunk has taken, along with the high level of detailed craftsmanship in the original production of each and every steamer trunk with that individualized character giving both intrinsic and non-intrinsic value.
However the truth of the matter is that the majority of these trunks were made towards the middle to end of the 19th century just at the dawning of the industrial revolution here in America when there were no child labor laws or protections. This rare photo clearly illustrates at least 3 generations of owners and workers, ages appearing to range from pre-teen/adolescent, teens/early adult, through middle to old age!
It was a common practice that loyal and productive craftsmen would be allowed to bring their children to work with them to learn a craft, so many of the children in this photograph were more than likely sons of the men shown.
Note the adolescent factory workers on top row! Note that there are no women in the photo! This is due to the fact that at that time "proper" women did not work outside of the home, certainly not in a factory. Everybody appears to look pretty stern, having on their arms crossed and "work" faces put on.
