Circa 1920's, American, After Shaving Talcum Powder by Paul Du Bois in Original Tin.
In the 1920's, Du Bois was located in New York, NY. This sensational talc powder was purchased directly from the estate of the original manufacturer. The labels and the bottles are similar to others retailed at the same time. They all probably came from the same manufacturing plant. The manufacturer would then paste on the bottles each retailer's individual labels.
This hard to find piece of historical memorabilia is still in fantastic condition with no damages. A silver tone, metal cap tops this upright, rectangular shaped, metal talcum tin. The original, cream colored paper label encircles the bottle. Printed on the label in bold, blue and white colored lettering, "PAUL DUBOIS AFTER SHAVING TALCUM * PAUL DUBOIS * DISTRIBUTOR * NEW YORK * NET WT 4 OZ.". Bold, dark blue and gold colored bands decorate the label. The contrast between the cream color and the vivid blue color is outstanding. The gold and blue colored bands stand out against the stark, cream colored background. The label is in great condition with no damages or lifting. This talc powder tin was designed to attract male customers! Ninety percent of the original talc remains in the bottle. When I shake the tin, I can hear the talc inside and it feels very full! Crisply stamped on the bottom of the talc bottle, "CONTAINER MADE IN U.S.A.". This hard to find talc powder is in great condition with minor scuffs normal for the age of this item. There are no DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLAKES, or CRACKS. This striking talc measures approximately 5 ¼ inches in height.

This unique powder bottle is a great gift idea for the collector. ***PLEASE NOTE: PayPal Payments due within 48 hours of purchase. *** ALL shipping costs are included!
