Here's an item that you rarely see in today's market! It comes from England and as far as I can tell by the marks, it dates around 1900. These covered toothbrush holders were often included in the toiletry sets* used in that period and were usually made of heavy glazed pottery and hand decorated. On the bottom is a raised mark which was used for all potteries made in Great Britain at the time, and next to it is a painted number and initials of the painter and below near the rim in another mark that is not clear, but possibly that of the potter. It measures 9" in length, 4" in depth, and 2" in height, and is in good condition considering age and use. *Toiletry Sets were composed of Bowl & Pitcher, Soap Dish, Cup, Covered Commode and various other pieces depending on the size of the set.
