Razor-sharp wing Jonny May has really caught the eye since joining Leicester Tigers". 24 October 2017 . Retrieved 24 October 2017. The much-touted mustache cup was the invention of a British potter named Harvey Adams. It was launched in the 1860s. This cup resembled a regular teacup. However, the add-on was the mustache guard. A ledge was attached to the top of the cup with a small opening, allowing men to enjoy their tea without worrying about their mustache wax melting. The cup that became a hit After joining Gloucester's rugby academy, [4] he made his first start for Gloucester Rugby in a pre-season friendly against Bath on 15 August 2009, and the next weekend he scored a try against Connacht after he had come off the bench. His first taste of first team action came in the Heineken Cup when he replaced Charlie Sharples against Newport Gwent Dragons and just over a month later he made his first start against London Wasps in the Anglo-Welsh Cup, playing on the wing. They were liked by Victorian men because moustache wax was often applied to keep every hair in place. When drinking hot liquids, steam from the drink melted the wax, which could then drip into the cup. Also, sipping hot tea or coffee could stain moustaches – hence the moustache cup.

The mustache cup received a very good response and it sold like hotcakes. While the cup was launched in Britain first, soon it began to be sold in European countries. Even men in the U.S. became fond of it. The inventor became wealthy and was able to retire just 15 years after inventing it. On 20 February 2010, May was a late replacement for Gloucester's match against Leicester Tigers at Welford Road Stadium after Fuimaono-Sapolu pulled out with a 'dead leg'. Although Gloucester lost, May played well and scored a try on his Premiership debut.

In a year when he lifted the World Test Championship mace and retained the Ashes in England, this feat – walking into India’s supposed home coronation and snatching the crown – surely tops the lot.

But an India team that had mulled (but ultimately resisted) drafting in Ravichandran Ashwin for this moonscape surface overnight failed to create another meaningful chance. Instead, Head and Labuschagne calmly constructed a partnership and a victory that will enter their country’s folklore, joining the triumphs in 1987, 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2015.

Photograph: Matthew Lewis-ICC/ICC/Getty Images The Rosenberg Library Museum was pleased to display two 19th century mustache cups as the May Treasure of the Month. Beards and mustaches have been distinct characteristics of the male figure throughout history. The oldest known portrait showing a shaved man with a mustache is a Scythian horseman from the Gillette Dynasty, ca. 300 BC. It wasn’t until the Victorian era that the extensive regiment of the mustache wearer necessitated the need for a protective guard. Mustache cups, cups sporting a semi-circular ledge over the rim, were invented to protect the extraordinarily magnificent mustaches of the 19th century from the effects of steam resulting from hot drinks and soups. The artifacts featured during the month of May were donated in 1972 by Mrs. John A. Mowat and in 1987 by Mr. George Beauvais.
