Item details

This is an original advertisement from a publication dated December 1886, of IVORY SOAP for Proctor & Gamble.

Advertisement area is about 4 1/4" x 7". May have a few light smudges from printing on reverse side, and opposite page, and light handling creases, but still in very good condition. Paper starting to age/brown.

"To thoroughly cleanse and purify garments without injury, they must be boiled to dissolve the oily exudations of the skin, and loose the dirt, when both can easily be removed by using a mild but effective soap like the "IVORY," (99 44/100% pure.)"

Shipping will be by USPS First-Class mail. The ad is kept in a document protector and placed between cardboard to prevent damage during shipping.

Please note: This auction is a paper advertisement, and not for the physical item shown in the ad.
