Antique,ceramic Toothpaste Crock Jar Pot Lid...with Rare Original Label Seals For SaleYou are offerding on an antique, ceramic, under-glaze transferred toothpaste container. However, this one is an antique "pot lid" with a difference, in that most of the original "paper sealer" which attached the top section (lid) with the bottom section (base), is still intact!! It is rare to find original "paper seals" on these old pieces! This is the first one I have seen in over 20 years of collecting, on this particular design pot lid. This pot lid dates to between 1900-1905. Condition of the item is good! It shows the customary glaze crazing. It measures 2 1/2" X 1 5/8" and stands 1 1/8" tall when the lid is in place on the base-plate. The base "plate" is very thin, (see pic.9) but a "cake" of hardened "tooth soap" which was almost as high as the lid section, would have been set on the plate and the toothbrush scraped across the cake, each time the tooth soap was used.
A great little piece for your collection....one with a difference, namely the original paper sealers on 4 sides of the rectangular pot lid. FOR VIEWERS WHO MAY NOT BE FAMILIAR WITH THESE DELIGHTFUL LITTLE JARS....THEY WERE USED BETWEEN APPROX. 1840-1920 TO MARKET VARIOUS PRODUCTS WHICH CAME IN A PASTE FORM. AFTER WWI THEY BECAME OBSOLETE AS MORE MODERN AND ECONOMICAL FORMS OF PACKAGING REPLACED THEM.THE RECOVERY AND COLLECTING OF THESE OLD PIECES HAS BECOME A POPULAR, WORLD-WIDE HOBBY, AND A QUAINT REMINDER OF A BYGONE ERA. BE ASSURED, YOU ARE offerDING ON A GENUINE AND AUTHENTIC PERIOD PIECE.
