Tin. Colgate's Antiseptic Dental Powder. Original box + 4 page brochure advertising other Colgate products (undated, some light browning o/w Very Good, i.e signs of careful use with no significant defects). Lithographed,nickelplated tin (blue on ivory) with fancy scrolls around No. 1 Size/ Colgate's/ Antiseptic/ Dental/ Powder/To Cleanse And Whiten/ The Teeth/ Colgate & Co./ New York U.S.A. on front, & around the advertising on back, which includes ingredients, compliance guarantee with 1906 Food & Drug Act, & The Name Colgate & Co. on .. [various products] .. corresponds to the `Sterling' mark on silver. Cap rotates to open side port & the top is embossed with Colgate logo. 3 3/4 h.x 1 5/8 d. The advertisement for Cashmere Bouquet on the front of the pamphlet references the recent improvement of its six hole sifter, which was introduced in a 1909 ad in McClure's Magazine. Earliertins of the dental powder had a patent date of March 27, 1906 or 1908 on the collar. A May, 1910 NY Times article announced that Colgate was moving its sales office to 199 Fulton St, NYC, the address shown on the brochure. Thus, I would place the tin C. 1915. Tin: As New with original contents. Box: topouter flap detached, but inner flaps are secure; small puncture in back o/w minor defects as shown in the accompanying pictures. Note: If the buyer wishes, I can reattach the top flap using archival tape to form a hinge on the inside.
