Vintage/Antique Medicine Tins

£49.99

Product description

A real mixed bag with tins originally containing all manner of remedies for those nasty ailments as well as a box to put them all in.
We start with a Hill's Bronchial Balsam Pastilles which has directions for use on the bottom. The tin measures 2.25" x 3.75" x 0.75".
The second tin is from the Ucal Laboratories in Cheltenham Spa and contained indigestion tablets and this little container measures 2" x 3.25" x 0.75".
The third tin contained Adexolin vitamin capsules and measures 2.25" x 3.25" x 0.75".
Next in line is a tin which used to contain The Allenburys Glycerine Pastilles as manufactured by Allen & Hanbury Ltd. and this vintage/antique measures 2" x 3.25" x 0.75".
Finally, as far as the 'medicines' are concerned, is a tin for glycerin and blackcurrant pastilles from Boots and this measures 2.25" x 3.25" x 0.75".
To put all of these out of harms reach there is a Boots First Aid box in a deep shade of blue. The box measures 6.75" x 10" x 3" and is capable of use even today.
As can be seen the items are in varying condition and are for sale as a package and not as individual items.
