This article presents information about certain collectibles and antiques and their prices. Popular from the middle of the 19th century until the first quarter of the 20th century, decorative shaving mugs were imported from France, Germany and Austria. White mugs were imported and then hand painted in the United States. The flowers on the mug were transfer-printed before the World War I. Mugs that have the owner's occupation painted or printed on them are the most valuable. Furniture that used antlers was first exhibited in the 1850s and 1960s in London, England. When furniture manufacturers immigrated to the United States in the middle and latter part of the 19th century, they found that longhorn cattle were plentiful in Texas and other Western states. This style is sometimes called fantasy furniture.
