This little old tin was for Uncle Hiram’s Brighten All. The powder was for severe cleaning jobs but it was suppose to be used with a liquid product. It has nice graphics with a man, presumably Uncle Hiram, on the front of the orange tin. Blue and white and orange and white banners criss-cross around the tin. The different panels tell of the benefits of using the product and give directions of its use. It has a slip on lid that covers the shaker top. It was made by the New Method Varnish Co. of Elmira N.Y. I believe is probably from the early 1900’s.
The empty tin measures about 1 5/8” in diameter by 3 1/16” high and is in nice original condition with good color and gloss and nice visual appeal. There are specks of paint loss and the raised rim near the top has paint loss. The side to the left of the front has a sizable dent which I have tried to show in the photo but a dent doesn’t photograph well.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
