DARKIE TOOTHPASTE was a brand of Hazel & Cawley Chemical Company and I believe was a very popular seller in Asia and The Far East up until the late 1980's. In 1985 Colgate's purchased the company and the brand was re-hashed as DARLIE. I don't know the age of this fan although think it is from around the 1960's-70's as it was from a collection of three we have listed ...one of which is dated to that time. The cardboard part of the fan measures 9" x 6"
