This attractive box was made by Wood & Clarke, Burslem, Staffordshire about 1872. It was made to hold a gentleman's straight razor, but would work well for a toothbrush, also.

The box is 8-1/4" long, and 3" wide. Although this piece has no maker's mark, it came with a matching shaving mug which is marked W & C, with a lion rampant, and the pattern name: Aviary. According to Godden's mark book, this firm was in business only from 1871-72.

Both lid and cover are in excellent condition. Both pieces ring when tapped (as well as earthenware ever rings). The only fault I see is a piece of frit stuck to the top edge, and this was done "in the making".
