Vintage Brillo Box - White Wall Tire Cleaning Pads
This is an old cardboard box for White Wall Tire JUMBO Cleaning Pads by the Brillo Mfg. Co. of Brooklyn. It still contains one of the 4 original scouring pads. These soap filled steel wool pads were specifically for cleaning the white wall tires of your car as shown and explained on the back of the box. Two sides of the box and the end flaps show a tire and one side has an example of the giant pad. The inside flaps show which Brillo products should be used for pots and pans and other household cleaning projects. I believe this is from the 1950's.
It is in fairly nice condition with some wear. It has creases and edge wear including small tears along the box opening corners. There is also a puncture on the panel that has the Brillo pad graphics. Consequently one inside flap is almost completely detached (see photo). Still it is a great display piece. It measures about 6 1/2" by 5 3/8" by 2 3/4".
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
