Old Sample, Talc Tin - Colgate Dactylis

This vintage miniature Dactylis talc powder tin was made by the Colgate Company. The tin is a pale green cream with a slightly darker green and gold design. On the back it reads; For infants and the toilet - Both the powder and its phenomenal perfume are antiseptic. On the side it says it is Guaranteed Under the Food & Drugs Act of 1906.

It is in very nice condition with a few flecks off of the front and some very small scratches. The cap and lid are gold in color with almost no discoloration. It appears to still be full and measures about 2 1/8" tall and 1 1/4" wide.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
