Fresh from the auction is this neat rectangular tin canister with orange, light yellow and black graphics for Sara'ka.

Measurements are:

3 5/8" across

2 5/8" deep and

6 3/8" high

This is surprisingly weighted for it's size.

This is empty, and has a very securely closing lid. The interior is quite clean and shiny with slight tarnishing evident.

We have not attempted to polish this.

The front and back panels read exactly the same:

Sara'ka Reg. U.S. Pat. Off

Contains Bassorin Frangula for Constipation

Tested and Approved Serial No 4853 by Good Housekeeping Bureau conducted by Good Housekeeping Magazine.

New Label adopted January 1940.

Distributed by Union Pharmaceutical Co., Inc. Bloomfield, New Jersey Made in USA

Net Contents 1 1/2 pounds.

***

The two side panels also read exactly the same; they give the directions for Adult and Children's usage, as well as a cautionary message, and the net contents weight again. "Bulk plus Motility".

***

Interesting collectible for a doctor, med student, clinic.
