Product description

Ucal (United Chemists Association Ltd) Seidlitz Powders - vintage tin
 
A c.1920s-30s vintage Ucal "Seidlitz Powders" tin (empty) with hinged lid, by the United Chemists Association Ltd, London and Cheltenham Spa, measuring approximately 11.1 x 7.6 x 4.5cm (4.35 x 3 x 1.75in). The exterior is printed in cream, purple, black and gilt, whilst the inside lid is finished in gilt with a printed advertisement promoting Ucal as "the largest organisation of chemists (qualified by state examination) that this country has ever known"; the outside base bears the remnant of the original retailer's label, along with some patches of solder (which suggest that the tin was put to use in a workshop once the original contents were used up).
 
There is considerable age wear to the exterior including scratching, scuffing, slight print loss, under-print tarnish spotting and patches of corrosion together with some marks; the interior and base are very much tarnished with some rust; the lid is somewhat battered, and there are some minor indentations to the sides and base of the tin.
