This is a vintage circa 1968 Vaseline Plastic Nursery Jar Lid. - The lid is marked with graphics of children and the price of 98¢ is stamped in the manufacturer's suggested price circle. - This is from a Blue Seal Package of the NEW Plastic Nursery Jar which was introduced in 1968.
** The first known reference to the name Vaseline was by the inventor of petroleum jelly, Robert Chesebrough in his U.S. patent for the process of making petroleum jelly (U.S. Patent 127,568) in 1872. "I, Robert Chesebrough, have invented a new and useful product from petroleum which I have named Vaseline..." - In 1859, Chesebrough went to the oil fields in Titusville, Pennsylvania, and learned of a residue called "rod wax" that had to be periodically removed from oil rig pumps. The oil workers had been using the substance to heal cuts and burns. Chesebrough took samples of the rod wax back to Brooklyn, extracted the usable petroleum jelly, and began manufacturing the medicinal product he called Vaseline.- Vaseline was made by the Chesebrough Manufacturing Company until the company was purchased by Unilever in 1987.
