This old tin was for a laxative called Figsen which contained figs and was probably fig flavored like one of the Ex-Lax products. The information on the back said it should be “chewed like candy”!!!! The orange and black tin has a slip-on lid and originally contained 27 Tablets at a cost of 25c. These were distributed by the Nyal Company of Detroit.

It measures about 2 5/8” by 2” by 9/16” and is in nice condition with light wear especially along the edges of both the top and the bottom. This would be a fun item displayed in a bathroom.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
