A Minton Victorian Gothic Revival Set of Soap Dishes with
Toothbrush Box or Razor Holder
all with original lids, soap dishes with strainers (8 items)
Transfer printed in puce probably after a pattern by A.W.N. Pugin
Minton Pottery, Stoke-on-Trent
Impressed marks for 1868
Soap Dishes: (Each) 12.9 cm diameter x 8 cm high
Toothbrush Box: 20 cm long x 9 cm wide x 6.5 high
Transfer printed in puce with an interlocking Gothic quatrefoil design, the borders and highights to the handles hand-painted. Marked beneath with various impressed marks including "Minton / BB", manufacturing year mark of elongated "G" symbol for 1868 and the painted pattern number "D785 m." All retaining their original lids and the soap dishes with their original srainers.
A beautiful and highly practical set of items offering a neat and eminently practical solution to what to do in a period bathroom with soaps, toothbrush heads and razors.
It is increasingly hard to find attractive examples of toothbrush boxes which retain their original lids and very unusual to find one in a suite with matching soap dishes.
Generally in excellent condition. Some age related crazing to the glaze and craquelure to one soap dish strainer.
