Yesterday’s Mystery Object was Shaving Soap.

Similar to shaving cream, shaving soap would be put on the face before using the razor, helping to make the skin smooth. A wet brush would be used to make a foamy lather to be added to the face. Since the soap would become wet and slippery, the wood box with its handle would help hold the soap.
