This is a wonderful pair of antique nickel plated ornamental shell-shaped wall mounted soap dishes made by the Brasscrafters Company and patented on January 19, 1909 by John P. Eustis. These are beautiful soap dishes in excellent overall condition despite wear to the nickel plating in the dish part of the soap dish. The original nickel plating still retains a great deal of their original luster.

The Brasscrafters was the trademark name of the J.P. Eustis Manufacturing Company, near Boston. The company got it’s start in 1899 creating a complete line of brass bathroom accessories. They included everything the turn of the 20th century bathroom would ever need, such as towel bars, towel baskets, cup holders, mirrors, toilet paper holders, match holders, and sponge holders. The Brasscrafters also made shower parts for baths. They created many different designs for all of the items they manufactured. Most of their designs were stamped with the trademark “The Brasscrafters” and a patent date of 1902, 1904, or 1912 to identify their superior design and durability. The Brasscrafters were known for their “Indestructible” design of silver soldered joints. The Brasscrafters also went on the manufacture the “White” line. This line included mirrors, medicine cabinets, soap dishes and most of their nickel accessories, but in a durable white finish. The durability is obvious as many of these products have survived over 100 years and have made it to the sales floor of Historic Houseparts.
