Vintage, American, "College Club" Talc Powder by Don Leslie in Original Tin
This sensational powder tin was purchased directly from the estate of the original manufacturer. The labels and the bottles are similar to others retailed at the same time period. They all probably came from the same manufacturing plant. The manufacturer would then paste on the bottles each retailers individual labels. This marvelous treasure was created in a rectangular shaped tin.
This unusual talcum powder tin is a one of a kind! This terrific powder box is UNOPENED. This hard to find piece of historical memorabilia is still in fantastic condition with no damages. A dark blue colored, metal cap tops this upright, rectangular shaped, metal talcum tin. A dark blue colored band accents the base of the tin. The contrast between the cream color and the vivid blue color is outstanding. The blue colored band and cap stand out against the stark, cream-colored background. This talc powder tin was designed to attract male customers! Printed on both sides of the container, "COLLEGE CLUB TALC * DISTRIBUTED BY DON LESLIE * 225 FIFTH AVE. NEW YORK, N.Y. * PRICE 50 Cents * NET WEIGHT 4 OZ.". Stamped on the base of the container, "CONTAINER MADE IN U.S.A.". Back in the day, this showy talc tin cost a whopping 50 cents plus tax! The tin is in great condition with minor scuffs normal for the age of this item. To be safe, I will say that there are a few, tiny, scratches on the tin. The scratches are minor and do not detract from the tins value. I am extremely particular and I ALWAYS try to mention EVERY, TINY detail. I prefer to be overly cautious then to have an unhappy customer. Mentioned for Accuracy and Priced Accordingly. I am selling this tin in "as is" condition. I have priced this piece at an extremely low cost to make up for the MINOR scratches. There are no other DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS, CHIPS, FLEABITES, NICKS, FLAKES, or CRACKS. This striking talc measures approximately 5 inches in height. This unique powder box/container is a great gift idea for the collector. ***PLEASE NOTE: PayPal Payments due within 48 hours of purchase. *** ALL shipping costs are included!
