Glass is MINT, NO damage. The Campana Company was incorporated in 1927. Its first product was Italian Balm, a hand lotion. The formula was purchased from a Dr. Campana, from where the company derives its name. Although the company first operated only two years before the start of The Great Depression, they were initially very prosperous. This was because of innovative methods of advertising promoted by their owner, Ernest Morgan Oswalt. Campana was one of the first companies to offer free cosmetics samples in magazines. A second method of advertising was the use of radio commercials. The Campana Factory had to change the name of its popular lotion to Campana Balm after World War II due to growing anti-Italian sentiment. Campana Balm was carried by every U.S. soldier and serviceman to prevent or heal burns. See photos. To purchase with MC or VISA please call Drury House Antiques 802-824-4395 EST
