Drug Store Pharmacy Advertising Tin, 100 year old tins, Cascarets candy cathartic laxative for constipation advertising tin. This cure all for men, women and children was distributed by Sterling Products Inc. of Wheeling, W. VA. Tin has blue gray background, blue and gold leaf printing on the top, sides have cross hatch pattern on the bottom sides, and directions for use on the back.
Pocket or purse size tins are 2 1/2" long, 1 1/2" wide, minute variation of 3/8" and 1/4" deep. As shown in photos there are slight variations to printing format. Both tins would have contained 16 tablets. Wear to corners and edges, view photos, all sides are shown. Tins are circa 1895 -1908.
Cascara, the ingredient suggested by “Cascarets," is derived from the bitter tasting bark of a species of buckthorn tree native to North America. Cascara had been prescribed by druggists and physicians as a remedy for constipation and related ills as early as 1877. But it was not until 1894 that the Sterling Remedy Company came up with a candy version which would turn out to be a huge blockbuster. Cascarets were made as brown tablets reputed to have a “pleasant taste–almost as pleasant as chocolate." Single tin for $19 or both for $35
