These 4 miniature french tins are very old indeed.
The first tin is Le Reniol which housed pills or small pastilles for a head cold, made up
by Pharmacist E Revel, 34 Rue St Lazard, Paris. One on ebay for 15 euros (but in better
condition) size 6 cms = 2 3/8" x 4,2 cms = 1 5/8"
The second tin is a very rare SQUARE miniature tin which had throat pills in. I have
searched the internet and only found round tins, much bigger than this one.
With a magnifying glass it read on the lid for coughs,bronchitit, flu etc., (in french) and the
pharmacy address 21 Boulevard Bourdon, Paris
size 4.2cms = 1 5/8" x 3.5 cms = 1 3/8"
The third tin is a very tiny Grains de Vals which is a laxative stimulant. A very old tin.
size 3.4 cms = 1 5/8" x 2.3 cms = 15/16".
The fourth tin is extremely tiny. A round tin which has EXPORTER VIMIDIME X, S.R. VIETNAM
on the top of the lid with central pharmacy 3 circled around it. I`m sorry I couldn`t
find any information on this one.
size 2.7 cms = 1 1/16" x 2.7 cms = 1 1/16"
All these tins have lids.

They are not in a new condition, they are what they are - very old miniature tins
