Vintage Charlotte Royal Crownford Soap Dish Wall Holder - Staffordshire England - Red Floral Transferware
The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. Alfred Austin
Sometime around the 1930's, this Royal Crownford soap dish was made in the famous pottery district of Staffordshire, England. Part of the Charlotte pattern, its billowy red transferware florals and highly functional purpose as a wall mounted soap and toothbrush holder made for a dynamic piece of utilitarian art in the bathroom. Still desirable for such a function, there are other ways to incorporate this dish into our modern lifestyles.
One such use, our favorite, is to incorporate it into your mudroom, potting shed or outdoor workspace where you need a little water station to clean up after gardening. If you are a digger in the dirt, you'll immediately know the need for a good scrub brush and a moisturizing bar of soap once your gardening projects are completed for the day. This heavy duty holder which hangs independently from one nail is a perfect worker for such a task. Easy to clean, simple to use and out of the way when it comes placement, its one of life's most helpful conveniences when it comes to making your space both pretty and functional.
