This is such a great Victorian soap or shaving bowl, made by John Maddock and Sons of England, and datable by the back stamp to 1896 or shortly after. The dish measures 5 1/2" wide to the edges of the handles by 5" tall, it is in a white pottery, and has a wonderful pair of ladies heads as the handles. The finial and handles and rim are decorated in patterns of burgundy and green, the whole look is very classic and period. This would be a wonderful accent piece on a dresser or vanity, you could use for soap, trinkets or as a gentleman's stud box. The box is very sturdy and in good condition for the age, there is some star cracking to the base that is surface and does not go through to the interior, and some wear to the rim of the bowl that has discolored slightly (see photos), otherwise just minor age appropriate wear, and no chips, cracks or other damage. Great strong Victorian look in a small and functional item, by a highly regarded English maker.
