I've always kept the odd hair cure as they are nearly always made in superb colours and make a great back-lit display.:cool: I cant say that I would too happy about putting dangerous chemicals on my head though; hence the bald Victorian, I guess:D

Its a great bottle though :cool:

It was not uncommon for dangerous additives to be in everyday cures, or just straightforward dangerous substances to be marketed as medicines, we are very used to hearing medications of around 1900 were lethal, and over time as science evolved they found out the ingredients and shut them down,

Anyone interested, i highly reccommend the below link, this will show you what the UK are used to hearing our ancestors called medicine,

Scotchbrite or the green layer of an everyday sponge and hard scrubbing in the sink usually does the trick, anymore than that send it away for a tumble, looks good enough as it is to me in them last pictures

The UK used to sell Dreft years ago; I wonder where it went? :ermm:


I guess some products just don't catch on ?

Pity about the sliver in the lip, but I guess it can be polished out without too much trouble:) Its more acceptable than a hairline (boom, boom! :laugh: :hehe: )

Hello everyone

For my first topic on this bottle forum I show you a wonderful find from a few weeks ago
found in a landfill due to construction work on a building here in the region of Zottegem (Belgium) where I live.

I'v been for a week done researches on the internet and discovered that this would be no ordinary find, not even for you where the bottle actually comes from.

Found only a newspaper artical from 1883 (on page 29)http://www.kwakzalverij.nl/assets/pdf-archief/kwakzalverij_1883.pdf

where the name " The new london royal hair restorerer of Dr Salp lotion" described as a dangerous product
because researchers have discovered that there is lead in this fluid and therefore this was a danger to public health.


dimensions height 14,5cm and outside diameter 5cm.

That was de way i cleaned it witch use of many dishwashing product ( called dreft)

a personal experience/trick :
After wiping dry the botte, a very fine layer of petroleum jelly will make the bottle very nice


Greetings
