    Small porcelain object with six holes and one more, most probably meant to be fixed to the wall or wherever. The back is not glazed. Not Oriental, most probably made by one of numerous Bohemian porcelain manufacturers.
    Two painted flowers under glaze blue. No marks whatsoever.
    It`s about 6 cm, a bit more than 2 inches.
    The only reasonable purpose I can see is to fix it to the wall and put flowers in the holes.
    Any ideas are appreciated, as well as similar items seen elsewhere.
    Thank you.

      Toothbrush holder, perhaps?
    2. IVAN49 IVAN49, 4 years ago
      Thanks for looking Efesgirl. Holes are very small, about 6 mm.
      Interestingly, toothbrush holders had 6 holes. Possibly other bathroom accessories, but what ?

      Ivan, it seems you solved your own mystery! ;-))

      What about those two wooden dowels with the ceramic tops? Do they fit in the holes?
    6. IVAN49 IVAN49, 4 years ago
      The set in image 4 was not complete.
      Full set added for comparison. The longest piece is 4`` (about 10 cm).
      Thank you for being kind.

      Toothbrushes used to be much smaller than they are today. My daughter and son both lived in different apartments with vintage bathrooms and their toothbrush handles didn’nt fit in the holes of the holder
