Moustache Cup

This was my G'pa Hanle's moustache cup. And, what is that ?? Well, the cup has a divider in it -- the front half has holes in it for the coffee to come through. Supposedly, this would keep him from getting coffee on his moustache as he was drinking. The marking on the bottom says Austria. Mom had this on a knick-knack shelf in her kitchen for many years. I think she probably remembered seeing him drink from it. I think it is a beautiful piece of porcelain and it has a home in my china cabinet.
