On a recent trip to Brighton I discovered this absolutely wonderful ‘tash-cup’ on display in the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery. It was designed for the gentlemen who wore mighty and well-shaped moustaches and didn’t want to get it wet, messy or otherwise compromised. It could as well have inspired the person that later invented and patented the plastic coffee cup lids, which are officially known as the ” Coffee cup travel lid” (United States Patent 4428498).
