Oh, For the Good Ol' Days...

British "Flu-Nips" Apothecary Bottle with Bakelite Lid (LEO Design)

Remember "The Good Ol' Days"?  When airborne maladies were vanquished with a simple little sweetie?  Whether this was truly the case—or just wishful thinking and deceptive promotion—this English Thirties "Flu-Nips" apothecary jar  would have stood at-the-ready on the counter of druggist, barber or candy shop proprietor.  A handsome graphic label (presenting a red cross) sits beneath a red bakelite screw-down lid.  Its soft square shape provided shipping efficiency; the maximum amount of product could be shipped in the smallest possible box when  square vessels are snuggly packed together in a multi-bottle carton.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
