This superbly detailed and truly unique toilet roll holder is a faithful copy of an original Victorian holder which featured in the 5 July 1884 ‘Ironmonger’ periodical. It was reported to be the first holder able to use un-perforated toilet paper. It features a lion and unicorn crest with the inscriptions ‘Sanitary Paper Company’s Patent’ and ‘Bury Street London’.
This holder is cast in solid brass and is hand aged to accentuate the detailing of the design. It is available in either an aged brass or aged nickel finish and has an updated spring loaded hard wood spindle. It comes mounted onto a solid oak backplate and is suitable for use with most modern day brands of luxury toilet roll paper.
Supplied with both fixings, fixing instructions and a copy of the 1884 ‘Ironmonger’ periodical, which many customers are reported to frame and put on display in their bathrooms.
