NOTE: There wer 2 types of shipboard soap dish wall mounts. The first that gripped the soap dish front and back and the second with legs.

U.S. Navy Officer and Enlisted Soap Dishes were used as personal hygiene items in a ship's head or washroom. These soap dishes were clipped into chrome plated or nickel metal wall mount brackets for easy removal and cleaning. These were used from the mid to late 19th century and possibly even up to WWI; certainly during the 1880's thru 1910 during the Spanish American War and Great White Fleet era.
