A little vintage antique cold headache medicine pill tin box from the 1920's or 30's, in French & English, by FAMILEX, Montreal Products Company in nice shades of robins egg and antique blue. FAMILEX was a famous Montreal company started in the 1920's by Roméo Parent on DeLorimier Street which sold to Quebec families many home and food-related products. Many housewives prepared meals with the cookbooks offered by the company as well.

Description of product in the back of tin specifies that it is 'non-depressing' ( ! )

This little box is in fantastic condition, with practically no visible wear to the outside, apart from a couple of tiny scratches near the closure and the remain of the old tape that sealed the box then.. Inside it is amazingly like new, with a lovely creamy butter yellow tone and no visible rust. In great condition for its 80 some+ years ! I love the french art deco feel of the company logo and typeface.

Measures 2 5/8" by 1 1/2" and 1/4" thick. (6.5cm x 4.5cm x 8mm)

Another Montreal collectible ! In french & English.

Will be shipped with care in a bubble wrap sheet inside a bubble mailer envelope.

I am also offering another antique FAMILEX Montreal pill box in my shop so do not hesitate to convo me for combined shipping before ordering if you love this other one as well :
