Vintage 1950's Era "Boraxo" Metal Soap Dispenser

Vintage 1950's era "Boraxo" industrial metal soap dispenser. These were usually found in restrooms and especially auto shops. The soap dispenser is in excellent complete & working order. Made by the "Elgin Paper Company" out of Elgin, Illinois, the soap dispenser was made to be wall mounted. Both metal brackets have 2 holes on each side for mounting to the wall. All the white & black paint is original to the piece, and it has survived very well free of any major scratches, dents, cracks or flaws. The company name plaque is in excellent condition as well. The lever at the bottom is in great working order. By pressing up on the lever, soap would be dispensed. The lever has developed a beautiful rust & patina. The top of the dispenser has a removable lid for filling the dispenser with soap. There is no soap in the unit currently. Altogether this is a beautiful piece of vintage Americana. Please Note: This item is over 60 years old, and although in excellent working condition for its age, minor flaws and imperfections may be present. Please see pictures for condition issues. 

Measurements: 9.25 inches in H, 5.25 inches in L & 5.85 inches in D. Weighs about 8 pounds.

Makes a great addition to already existing collection of vintage advertising. Item is quite rare to find & is in excellent condition. Would make a great addition to a 50's style restaurant, decoration for a mancave, movie prop, ect. Beautiful piece of vintage American advertising. Always a conversation piece!
