AESTHETIC ERA GREY BLACK TRANSFERWARE POT LID

ORIENTAL TOOTH PASTE

Ardwick Green ~ Manchester, England

c. 1890

This early version large Victorian 3 1/2 " wide x 2 " tall covered ceramic earthenware container was made during Victorian times as a tooth cleaner and for freshening the breath. Dental hygiene was poor and a few chemists realized the importance of brushing one's teeth. A very attractive pot with an "ice crackling" transfer.

The piece is in good condition. Light chipping to the upper and lower flange and along the foot of the base. A lovely vanity item with real history. The piece will make a great addition to any collection of transfer printed advertising wares or quack medicines, and would make a fabulous gift for the dentist in your life!
