This oval shaped tin measures 3-1/2" tall and 2" wide. The bottom is marked "5 J 1 1" - but you simply must read the details on the front & back:
"An Efficient Dentifrice"
"A preparation of pharmaceutical purity"
"For cleansing and beautifying the teeth"
This tin shows all the signs of age you'd expect: light scratches, flicks of paint missing, a bit of rust around the foot ring - but overall it's in lovely condition with no dents or dings, no real damage at all. The lid is very tightly screwed on and I have reason to believe it has never been opened as it sat on a shelf in my mother's bathroom for decades (as a decoration - not because she thought she'd ever use it!).
