    Description

    A Madonna Toothbrush and Handwritten Note, Circa 1987. A gold-colored toothbrush by Medicis Paris; together with a note handwritten in black ballpoint ink on Four Seasons Hotels notepaper reading in full "Dear Mark - / Next to diamonds / a toothbrush is / a girls best friend! / love Madonna;" donated by the star to artist Mark Schilder who used Madonna's toothbrush in his painting titled "Seven Days of Frowning," a work that received much media attention back in 1987 since he incorporated countless celebrity toothbrushes that had been donated to him into the actual work.
    Note: 6" x 4"; Toothbrush: 7"

    Years later, Schilder decided to dismantle his work but salvaged the celebrity toothbrushes from it; because of this, there is glue residue on Madonna's toothbrush.
