Previous Item  Green Transferware 3 Piece Soap Dish Next Item

This charming antique 3 piece soap dish is stunning. It consists of the bottom dish, the middle pierced strainer, and the handled lid. These covered dishes were meant to sit on a washstand with a pitcher and bowl, or on the edge of a sink or lavatory once running water became more common in homes. The wet soap would drain into the dish below, and could be covered to keep it out of sight and free from dust and dirt. This piece does show some age with a very small chip on the rim of the lid. The green colors and detailed artwork are beautiful against the white porcelain. Included with the soap dish are 2 leaf shaped bars of soap.

Measures 4" H x 5 ½" Diameter
