This cleverly named product came in a diminutive tube measuring 3.5 inches long with its carton a mere 4 inches long. Supposedly, by following directions and using "at the right time", this ointment would measure up to its full potential.
Dates to the 1950's - 1960's era and is in very good condition.
This antiquated medicine with inert contents is meant for display ONLY and NOT meant for use.
A GREAT conversation piece!
This cute size display measures 4.5" x 3.75" closed and is in very nice condition. The top lifts up to facilitate advertisement of the product and would have been placed on the counter top of a pharmacy in this fashion. A neat find!
The frame measures 14.5" high x 11.5" wide and is in fine condition. Although once common, these decorative documents are getting more difficult to find. Ready to hang!
The REXALL Seidlitz tin is produced by United Drugs, Boston, Massachusetts. The tin has been protected by shrink wrapping which can be removed if desired. The tin measures 4.50 inches wide, 3.25 inches high, and 1.75 inches deep and is in fine condition with the expected superficial surface abrasions and displays very nicely!
The back side of the bottles are ribbed indicating that the contents are poison. The bottles are empty of contents. The bottles date to the 1920s and are ready for your collection. The bottle on the left has a label that is slightly better than the one on the right. Priced each.
The cover has a crack as seen in the photo, but the jar otherwise is quite fine lending flair and elegance to your apothecary collection.
The mirror front has a faded salmon colored border surrounding an image of a person's face with protruding tongue, about to swallow a "NR" (Nature's Remedy)tablet.
Imprinted around the circumference of the mirror is the following, "Take One Tonight - You'll feel Better In The Morning."
"Better Than Pills For Liver Ills - Get a 25 Cent Box"
Original mirrored backing is in very fine condition with just a few very minute, superficial scratches. Some fading of color around the very edge of the mirror as seen in photos.
Manufacturer name stamped on bottom edge: "Parisian Novelty Company, Chicago".
An interesting little advertising piece!
Cleverly conceived and constructed, this display combines a very, visually-pleasing, accessible medicine display that promoted spur-of-the-moment purchases at the drug store cash register, along with a tape dispenser for use by the pharmacist and his employees! Quite clever--- as it guaranteed that the display would remain in use and visible in the pharmacy as the tape dispenser provided a nice convenience for drug store employees!
In very nice condition with expected scratches, paint rubs, and non-problematic, superficial surface rusting here and there (please see photos) expected of a 75+ year old functional display.
The display retains one of its twelve, original, glass Alka-Seltzer medicine bottles (empty of contents) as well as an older, used roll of tape in the dispenser!
A very unique advertising drug store display sure to start an interesting conversation at your next dinner party!
The condition is near excellent with no damage, cracks or dings with only minor gold gilt loss to the pestle.
An outstanding display that will compliment any pharmacy collection.
This colorful picture display salutes the achievement of the 1st American Apothecary General .
The self-framed picture is constructed of a quality thick card board and has a built-in easel on back for displaying. The picture can also be easily framed (my choice). Perfect color throughout - no fading - glare due to photo. Measures approx. 21" long x 17.75" wide. Dates to the 1950's to early 1960's.
Looks better in person! Stunning!
This diminutive size display measures 4.25" x 3.25" closed and is in very nice condition. The top lifts up to facilitate advertisement of the product and would have been placed on the counter top of a pharmacy in this fashion. A neat find!
This complete display consists of 24, small 'sample' medicine boxes, each of which contain colorful little red pills!
Each box's label includes ingredients described as 'laxative and cathartic’.
Packed by CHANDLER MEDICINE CO. - Office 2812 Dodier Street, ST. LOUIS, MO., the display measures 6" x 5" x 1" and is in unused, fine condition. ***NOTE*** The cover must be separated from each corner to be set-up as a display as seen in photo.
What a great collectible for the pharmacist, nurse or doctor in your life!
The bottle measures nearly 7.5 inches high and is complete with original contents. The condition of the bottle is very nice with only minor staining next to the letters in the word, BONKORA. Although the box is damaged, it displays well as it retains the image of the nude female- an interesting conversation piece!
A bit of history: BONKORA was actually advertised as a weight loss treatment in print advertising, although this usage is not stated on the box. With sales in decline in the late 1930s, the BONKORA manufacturer attempted to make their product a bit more interesting by streamlining the original, bulkier silhouette in their advertising and adding a naked lady on the label. While a clever touch, the product’s popularity continued to wan – perhaps due to a combination of the economics of the Great Depression and the increased federal enforcement of earlier-legislated laws prohibiting unsubstantiated wild curative claims for any and all maladies.
An unusual all around treatment remedy for the relief of many conditions including: Pneumonia, Bronchitis, Neuralgia, Neuritis, Lumbago, Congestion of the Lungs, Flu, Coughs, Colds, Croup and Swelling!
The tin is full of medicated gauze which was placed in boiling water creating a paste which was then applied hot with a towel.
Neat stuff created by the "PHI-TEM COMPANY, North Chelmsford, MA."
Condition is good with original contents and faded purple colored paper label with scuffs stains and wear seen in the photos. Measures 3 inches tall and appears to be from 1930-1940 era. 3 tins available.
Don't miss this extremely hard-to-find beauty!
