This is the Minerware Bud Vase "Laundry Damp’ner" Sprinkler Bottle. It was produced in different colors and originally sold for 59¢. This is the white version with red graphics and a red rose. What makes this one special is that it's unused with the original tag! A Design Patent was filed on 4/17/1963 and on 6/16/1964 Patent No. 198,469 was assigned.
● Plastic sprinkler with a 10 ounce capacity.
● The bouquet stopper, a red rose with all 5 green leaves, is removable for easy filling.
● Stands 8 1/2” tall with the original paper hang tag.
● On bottom: MINERWARE INC. as well as PAT. PEND. and MADE IN U.S.A.
● Condition, bottle: Display ready and without damage. Of mention is a 1" long, faint grey discoloration on the front which appears to be molded within the plastic. See images.
● Condition, hang tag: "Frank's Nursery" sticker, very slight soiling, a few small moisture stains, a waviness to the surface, and two very slight bends. See images.
This would be a rare addition to any vintage sprinkler bottle collection!
