Royal Windsor was a hair and perfumery company in Paris.
Here they are advertising a hair product - regenerateur des cheveux. They say (on the reverse of the card) that it stops the hair going gray and gives it new life and vitality - but they say it isn't a dye and is hygienic. They won gold medals for the product in Brussels in 1880 and Amsterdam in 1883.
