Perry & Co.'s Royal Aromatic Elastic Bands - small vintage cardboard container
An early 20th century antique / vintage small cylindrical cardboard container for "Perry & Co.'s Royal Aromatic Elastic Bands" ("Series No. 1 / Warranted Superior / Sold by all Stationers / Wholesale at Old Bailey, London, late of Holborn Viaduct / Manufactured by Wm. Warne & Co Limited"), with cloth-covered edges, paper label to lid and embossed paper covering to the sides; still inside are the hardened and perished remains of some of the (presumably) original rubber bands.
Whilst the container shows various signs of age (see condition description below) - and, as the contents are no longer fit for use, this item is offered for sale as a collectable or display piece only - it remains nicely displayable, and would make a lovely addition to a collection of vintage packaging or stationery.
