This little medicine tin for the well known cold remedy Mentholatum has wonderful graphics. On the slip on lid is a young girl dressed in a nurses uniform with the slogan “The Little Nurse for Little Ills”. The outer edge reads; Always Carry With You and Fill From Your Jar at Home. The many uses of Mentholatum were stated on the back including Sunburn, Head Colds, Nervous Headache, Piles and After Shaving. This was from the Mentholatum Co. of Wichita Ks. And Buffalo, NY. I believe it is from the early 1900’s.
The empty tin measures about 1 ½” in diameter by 7/16” thick and is in good condition with nice gloss and minor wear, mostly on the back where there is also a little bit of rust along the edge.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
