literally, in fact, because she is a toothbrush holder. The chore of brushing your teeth would be a treat when you had this flirtatious flapper to look at. Of excellent china, this brush-holding belle is 4 inches tall and 3.25 inches wide. On each side of the yellow base is a small rectangular opening for holding a toothbrush.
While most vintage toothbrush holders were made to stand on a sink or bathroom shelf, this holder would have hung on a wall, with the triangular opening for a nail or hook. I suspect not too many survived, because a careless bump could send this fragile femme crashing to the tiled floor and her demise. This piece is incised on back "777" and is of fine German quality.
