These new-old-stock, vintage Starline starburst bathroom toothbrush and cup holders sold on ebay recently for $49 plus shipping. Aren’t they spectacularly gorgeous? It’s interesting to me that back in the day — from the 1940s through to…. hmmm… the 1970s? — there were so many manufacturers of items like these. The big makers seem to have been Hall-Mack and Miami-Carey — but now here we have Bush Brothers Products Corp. of Little Valley, New York. I did some quick online research, and it appears that the company still exists today as Bush Industries, a manufacturer of office and home entertainment center furniture. They started in 1959 as Starline Housewares, a maker of towel racks and toothbrush holders.
Anyway… if you keep an eagle eye out, atomic starburst bathroom fixtures do come up on ebay now and then… you just gotta wait it out, and meanwhile, save your dough-re-mi, because the prices continue to rise.
