Rare Josephine Baker Hair Product! This is an extremely rare glass jar that used to contain a product called Bakerfix. This hair pomade was marketed by Josephine Baker in the early 1920’s so that women could copy her famous style. This ribbed-glass jar measures approximately 5-3/4 inches high & is 3-3/4 in diameter. Both the top lid & the bottom are embossed “Bakerfix” & “Paris” with a small star on the lid. The front label has a picture of Josephine Baker & says “Bakerfix, Brillantine”. There is a small label in the back describing how to use the product (in French). No chips or cracks, this jar is in incredible shape. There is some age & damage to both of the labels, please see photos, but nothing at all to detract from the charm of this important piece of history.
