Soap dish

£30.00 / Sold Out

This soap dish comes with a bar of French rose petal soap.

Hand washing has become such a part of our lives, and this reminds us why.

Before Lister or Pasteur and the germ theory that to us now seems obvious, many women died of puerperal fever following childbirth, until Ignaz Semmelweis worked out that hand-washing saves lives in the 1840s.

Reading the text on this dish while rubbing up a lather makes for a meditative 20 seconds!

Transfer decorated with roses and text on the inside.

Hand painted with pink lustre on the outside.
