80+ year old soap dispenser


Recommended Posts

I assumed that soap dispensers mounted above lavatories or kitchen sinks were a fairly recent innovation. it appears that I was wrong. The sink in a circa 1903 home I did today was made in July of 1929. I believe the soap dispenser was installed with the sink. The lettering is clearly Art Deco, and while the dispenser itself was chrome plated, the reservoir was nickel plated. Period appropriate based on my admittedly limited knowledge. I've done a lot of homes from this time period and I have never seen one of these. Pretty cool in any case.
