This is a French toothbrush holder box produced somewhere in or near Paris, so technically "Old Paris." The date is the 19th century, circa 1865.

The lid of the box is 8" long, 3 ½" wide and 2 ¾" high to the top of the finial.

The glaze is white. The finial is an acorn with the leaves on top of the lid part of the blank.

There are three holes at each end of the lid, to allow for the evaporation of moisture from a wet toothbrush.

Inside the box there are porcelain raised edges, allowing a person to store two tooth brushes inside the box.

The underside of the lid is also glazed except the underside rim is unglazed or bisque. The underside of the bottom of the box is also unglazed.

The lid is heavier than the bottom, perhaps due to the finial.

There are no maker's marks.

There are no chips, cracks, or crazing. There is some discoloration of the unglazed parts due to age.
