Early unopened regular size Volco Cleanser container from the "Volco Manfg. Co., Wichita, Kansas". This is a cardboard container with an applied paper label, tin bottom and tin 'hole punch' top. This container has darkening from age and on the front there are light indentations showing label loss. Oddly enough, looking at it from a distance, the largest indentation line that is in the shape of a V almost looks as though it is a part of the graphics. The damage is there but nevertheless the container label certainly holds its own. The graphic image of the volcano is quite dramatic and the colors although darkened are still beautiful. The label on the sides and back of the container has age darkening but otherwise is in very good condition (see photos). The top of the can has a great old patina and the bottom remains solid. This collectible does not come along very often and this one is in very nice collectible condition.
Circa: 1910-1925, dimensions, 4 3/4" tall x 3 1/4" diameter.
See photos for vintage aging and wear.
