This floral decorated toothbrush holder would have been part of a much larger toiletry set of up to eleven pieces. Lighter more pastel-like colors seen here, became popular in ceramics beginning in the 1850’s. The decorations on these pieces are of a very high quality.

The architecture of Belmont Mansion makes it one of the most significant homes of 19th century Tennessee.

Sold by the Acklen family in 1887, the house went to a developer who began one of Nashville’s early suburbs.

It was then purchased by two women who in 1890 started a college which evolved into Belmont University. Today the Belmont Mansion Association, which was formed in 1972, owns the collection, runs the museum, and shares this unique story of 19th century Nashville with visitors from far and near.
