Vintage Made In Japan Googly Eyed Dog Toothbrush Holder
Here we have a cute Googly Eyed dog with a hole in his posterior. This is probably a child's toothbrush holder but it could be for almost anything that works. I didn't have a child's toothbrush to try but I am sure it will fit.
Japan's cottage industries manufactured oodles of these little household trinkets in the 1930's PRE-WWII. This one isn't marked but I am certain it came from Japan. I believe it had a MIJ sticker at one time.
Condition: The dog has a crack on his butt but it doesn't detract from his overall appearance of around 80 years old. There doesn't appear to be any trauma to the dog's body so I imagine the crack is age related. Other than the crack, I don't see any other flaw or hurt spots. The color is an odd sort of mottled green and gray mix. He (could be a she) looks like a Cocker Spaniel to me.
Measurements: From front to back, 4-1/2" Long or Wide, 2-1/2" Tall and 2" deep or thick.
Toothbrush holders of this type are quite collectible today.
Thanks for looking. Enjoy your day!
