Antique of the week

These barber shop TOWEL STEAMERS/STERILIZERS were common during the early 1900’s.  “The Sun”, shown here,  would keep towels hot for the barber to prep customers beards prior to shaving.  Also, these steamers would be a source of hot water for the barbers to mix soap lather in their mugs.  A combination of HOT TOWELS and HOT LATHER is best for close shave.
