Toucan and Chameleon Soap Dish by Jeanne Jackson
A delightful addition to any bathroom, this intricately decorated soap dish with three drain holes has been hand made by Jeanne Jackson. Both the toucan and Chameleon motifs are often present in Jeanne's work and add a fun sense of colour and charm to her pieces whilst demonstrating her attention to detail and interest in the natural world. The piece measures approximately 18.5cm x 15cm and is 4cm high on it's little ball feet.
