Container would have originally contained 3 ounces net weight. Circa 1926. In 1927, Albert L. Rich, Manufacturer, of New York was involved in a lawsuit brought on by E. C. Rich also of New York, Manufacturer of Rich’s Crystallized Canton Ginger. It was determined by the courts that there was trademark confusion and infringement of Rich’s trade name (E.C. Rich) and therefore Albert Rich did not have the right to use his own name to designate merchandise he sells. Not sure how long afterward he was in business as R & S. See photos, all sides of tin are shown. To purchase with MC or VISA please call Drury House Antiques 802-824-4395 EST or use PAYPAL
