Vintage Vegas: Moustache Cup from Caesars Palace

Nowadays a ‘Moustache Cup’ would have a curly handlebar printed on the edge so drinkers look like they’ve got a dastardly ‘stache

But this is not your hipster’s coffee cup …

See the bit of moustache wax under “Las“? That’s the real deal, folks.

Moustache Cups had a protective strainer built-in so your ‘stache wouldn’t get soaked  

We spotted this one in a Petaluma antique shop. Many (including the shop owner) confuse them with the Barber Cup variety which also had strainers; but were for edging off excess foam from the shaving brush, not for drinking. Supposedly, John Lennon drank from a Moustache Cup while recording Sgt. Pepper’s.
