This California Cleminsons pottery wall hanger is a toothbrush holder in the shape of Pinocchio. It is hand-painted in typical Cleminson colors and style. It measures 9" high by 4" across by 1.5" in depth. This wall hanger is in excellent condition, with a very good restoration to a nick at the tip of his nose. This very sweet 1950s toothbrush holder would be a great conversation piece for a guest bathroom. According to online references, it was made to hold a toothbrush on Pinocchio's nose. The original box included a poem:
I'm a very naughty puppet as most everybody knows. And I've told a lot of awful fibs I'm sorry to disclose. Each fib I told my nose grew longer. I was an awful sight to see! Now to be good, my will grows stronger, what would you do if you were me? I must be good for something, now "what" do you suppose? I know, now I have it! You may hang your toothbrush on my nose!
