An afterthought…this soap dish was especially valuable as my high school mascot was/is the lion. I can’t tell you how excited I was when I unearthed this jewel! It was not only a LION but blue saltglaze ware! I’ve collected it for years with the shades of blue catching my eye, then the utilitarian dings adding to its charm. Hard to find anymore tho. And of course its intrinsic value tripled knowing it was BB’s grandparents’!
