An article in the January 1896 edition of the Home Furnishing Review, advertises this Turtle Cuspidor to the careful Housewife. It states that due to the offensive nature of spittoons, the 'Turtle' is touted as Genius in that it is not only cLeanly in itself, but a positive Ornament to the "Queens Parlor".

TurtLe was found at estate sale in an impeccable ladies home that owned a lot of beautiful Victorian items. We purchased some of these items which will be listed over the next several weeks.

Cuspidor will ship via USPS Priority mail with Tracking/Insuranceanywhere within the US for $40.00. International buyers are encouraged to contact me regarding shipping and Insurance costs which may vary depending on destination Country.
