Vintage Succus Cineraria Maritima Wood Quack Medicine Box.. Walker Pharmacal Co

An extremely rare wood shipping / advertising box for "Succuss Cineraria Martima", a product sold by the Walker Phamacal Company in the early 1900's. It was claimed that this product could cure various eye problems and diseases. The Walker Pharmacal Company was known for manufacturing and sale of quack medicine products. It was sued by the U.S. Government a number of times and was involved in much litigation over its quack medical products. The wood box is very well crafted with dove tale joints and a lid that slips on and off through a grove near the box top. The box measures approximately 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 1 3/8". This piece is from the early 1900's. It is in good vintage condition with beautiful patina and displays nicely (see photos). The label on the lid of the box is in good vintage condition and is nearly 100% intact. There are just a few worn places where it is difficult to read (see photos). This piece has a lot of character! It would be a wonderful addition to anyone's collection of old medicine bottles, boxes, etc.
