When I first spotted this item, I had no idea what it was. I initially guessed that he was a monk. Upon researching "His Chopper Hopper", I learned that this is a vintage denture container. Gross - but kind of cool right? There is even a LADY VERSION! Unfortunately I just have the man but the the lady chopper hopper can be found on the interwebs. I did a superficial cleaning of this guy but he has some tight nooks and crannies that could really shine with some soap and a tooth brush. He has a few minor chips around the bottom of the lid and base but they are not very noticeable. He would make for a great odd decor item in any bathroom. He would also make a good gift for Grandpa.
