These toothbrush fragments were recovered during excavations at Constitution Hall in Lecompton. The toothbrush handle has "Le Trocédero" engraved on the top. The Trocadéro is a name for an area in Paris, France, across the Seine River near the Effiel Tower, making this somewhat of an exotic toothbrush. The hall was constructed in 1855 and functioned in a variety of different roles. Constitution Hall is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is a National Historical Landmark for its role in the 1857 Lecompton Constitution.

Date: 1855-1920
