Brandreths Pills tin container sealed with original contents, circa 1880-1910. He immigrated to the United States in 1835, hoping to find a bigger market than he had in England for his “Vegetable Universal Pill” invented by his grandfather, William Brandreth. The formula was a powerful cathartic and played off the popular notion that impurity of the blood was the source of many ills. Brandreth's pill company was known as The Brandreth Pill Works when he established operations in Ossining New York. For fifty years Brandreth’s name was a household word in the United States. The Brandreth pills were so well known they received mention in Herman Melville's classic Moby-Dick. They were also a marketed to soldiers during WW1. Lithograph tin container with contents is 2" long, 1" by 7/8". Retains excellent gold and crisp finish to the pill tin. If you like small pill tins, see item 1756r.
