AESTHETIC ERA BLACK TRANSFERWARE POT LID & BASE
HYGIENIC TOOTH SOAP
19th Century England
This early version rectangular Victorian 2 1/2 “ long x 1 3/4 " wide x 1 1/4 " tall covered ceramic earthenware container was made during Victorian times. Dental hygiene was poor and a few chemists realized the importance of brushing one's teeth. A very attractive pot with black transfer. Edward Cook had a quack twist and made his into soap.
The piece is in good condition, a chip to the inside rail. 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!
