Hi. Recently I got to tour a old house, in the bathroom the toilet tissue holder was a 6” ceramic shaft sticking out from the wall at a slight upward angle. Does anyone know what these were called? I’m renovating our master bath and would like to use such holders. I’ve tried searching toilet tissue holder, ceramic toilet paper holder, ceramic toilet paper horn, ceramic shaft, antique paper holder, vertical paper holder, and just about any combo that I can think of, but I haven’t seen anything like them. The house was prob. 1900 to 1920 and the bath was all tile. Lowe’s and Home Depot looked at me like I’m crazy when I asked there.

How about “ceramic penis”? Just kidding, but that’s what it sounds like. Never seen one. Can you post a picture?

No. I didn’t take any pictures at the time. It’s just a ceramic rod, rounded at the end, with a slight upward angle( prob. around 30 degree angle) just enough to keep a roll from coming off when turning the roll. The base was the size of a 4×4 ceramic tile. I never saw them before. Since my searches didn’t yield anything like it, I thought they may have a special name.

It was probably one of those products made by one company for a short period and was not continued due to very little demand. That would be a tough item to find. Maybe check with a local pottery club or supplier and see if someone could make one for you.

Thanks Garyl, that’s an option I hadn’t thought of.
