 At www.specialistauctions.com  i have 2 Vintage Aluminum thimbles advertising Dr Lovelace's Soap. Both are in lovely condition, a memento of a bygone era.

On the canal bank at Clayton Le Moors in Lancashire was where the infamous  Dr Lovelace's Soap Factory stood.
In Victorian times the factory patented a bar of soap which floated in water therefore did not get lost in the bath!

I also found these soap related items at www.specialistauctions.com
