This old tin once contained a laxative known as Bile Beans. The Laxative Plus came in “Twists” and were said to be “A Reliable Corrective for Constipation & Liver & Stomach Disorders. There are three panels with the Bile Beans name and three panels that have the dosage, formula and company information. This Medically Tested medicine was the product of C.E. Fulford LTD. Of Leeds, England. The round tin has a slip on lid and I believe this is from the 1920’s or 1930’s.
The empty tin measures almost 2 ½” high by 2 5/8” in diameter. It is a fun tin in fair condition. It displays well but apparently the tin was sealed with some type of tape and some of it still remains on both the tin and the lid. Also, a couple of the panels are faded, probably from someone being a bit too aggressive about cleaning it. There is some paint loss along the outer edge of the lid and there is some scratch wear. All that said, it is still a nice little tin and fun conversation piece.
