SOLD Drugstore or Pharmacy Herbold Pomade Hair Care Advertising In Original Box
Herbold Pomade, original box and glass container with contents, never used. It was a controversial product; introduced in the 1940's it was brought before the Federal Courts and Federal Trade Commission in 1951. A cease and desist order was issued regarding false advertising and promises. Matters were resolved and advertising was revised stating to "gradually tone down gray". It was developed by Hollywood chemist, M. Herbold. Guaranteed to not rub off on your pillow or discolor clothing, satisfaction or money back offer was standing. In 1961, 1 oz. retailed for $1.25. Box is 2 1/8" square, 1 3/4" tall, cardboard, two sides are printed with "How to Use" and "Caution" statement. It was a rocky road for the product and as late as 1968 the courts were still reviewing their advertising. The pomade was contained in a milk glass jar, one ounce container with paper wrap around label with How to Use and Caution instructions, metal twist off lid has a ding. 1 5/8" tall, 2" diameter jar was made by Hazel Atlas Glass Co.
