Item details

Antique 1920s era boxes of Del-A-Tone Cream Hair Remover, Stacomb Luxurious Hair Dressing and Woodbury's Facial Cream.

Del-A-Tone Cream Hair Remover in good shape with minor wear to edges and corners. Appears 5 cents writing in pencil then erased and a few minor spots. Box measures 3.75 x 1 x .75 inches.

Stacomb Luxurious Hair Dressing (Ma\kes the Hair Stay Combed) box measures 3 x 1 x 1 inches. Acceptable shape. Wear to edges, corners and flap. One end flap missing. Slight creasing on front. Still a nice box from the era.

Woodbury's Facial Cream box measures 2.75 x .5 x .5 inches. Nice box with minor wear to edges and corners, very mild crease. Side note, in 1911, Woodburry's became the first company to use sex to sell a product. Their ad slogan, created by the J. Walter Thompson Agency, claimed that women who used the soap would have "Skin You Love To Touch". In 1936, Woodbury was one of the first companies to use nudity in its advertisements. The ad, known as "The Sun Bath", was photographed by Edward Steichen and showed a nude woman lying on stairs on her side with her back to the camera. The text advertised that Woodbury Soap was now enriched with "filter sunshine".
